    Read the RG docs. They should have something on this.
    Next use redhat-config-network-[gui|tui|druid|cmd] as
    root.

    Hi Kissi5559,

    You may want to familiarize yourself with the user manual at:

    [url]http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/[/url]

    Can you tell us more about what you have tried so far and what problems you
    faced ?

    Later,
