    I have had very good luck using dhcpcd client. Redhat has had problems
    with pump. RH 7.2 looks for dhcpcd, then the pump dhcp client.
    Depends if you loaded the dhcpcd client during install or later.
    I am assuming eth0 is the device hooked to the cable modem.

    Get to the dos prompt on your Micro$oft windoze box and do a
    ipconfig /all

    Note/print the values. Now do a
    ipconfig /release

    Let's assume c429285-a is your node name from your isp,
    use the one found from the ipconfig.


    There are just a very few places which still require the DHCP_HOSTNAME
    value. It will not hurt to set it here.

    Add DHCP_HOSTNAME="c429285-a" with quotes, to
    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
    and change BOOTPROTO="dhcp"
    ONBOOT=yes

    Modify /etc/sysconfig/network with the gateway address
    NETWORKING=yes
    GATEWAY=192.168.1.1 <======== change
    GATEWAYDEV="eth0"


    Next modify /etc/resolv.conf Here is an example:
    search localdomain attbi.com <==== change
    nameserver 204.127.202.444 <==== change
    nameserver 216.148.227.684 <==== change

    put your hostname.domain name in /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    123.237.123.123 c429285-a.client.ISP.com

    hook the pc to the cable modem
    Unplug Power from modem <== This is required to make the cable modem
    wait 1 minute <== reset it's internal interface to your nic
    Power up the modem.

    When you have modem sync, do a
    service network restart
    or
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
    and see what errors you have in /var/log/messages

    Execpt for ip numbers, your route should look kinda like
    route -n
    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
    192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
    127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
    0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

    Networking, and everything else, is explained in RedHat's
    "Customization guide", better than most of us can do it here.
    The pictures in there help too.

    You will find all RedHat specific manuals at

    [url]http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/[/url]

    Choose the "Customization guide" and see the networking chapter.
    That is the authoritative doentation regarding RedHat.

    Post your inquiry on alt.os.linux.redhat.

    You will be more likely to get RedHat specific answers to your query.

    load the driver for the nic, configure your ip address and subnet mask
    as your provider told you to (most providers use dhcp anyway) and you're
    done.
