Question eth0 won't initialise on bootup.

I'm a real Linux beginner (oh god they say). I am running Red Hat 6.0 on an IBM Thinkpad 600e.

Redhat installed OK. I upgraded the kernel and card services as per the model specific doc's on the Linux on Laptops page and it seems to go OK.

However, "eth0" fails to initialise when the machine boots. I can go into the GNOME control panel and initialise it manually, but it won't do it autimatically.

Any ideas, I still haven't got the hang of the order in which everything loads up yet so I'm not sure if there are any config files or whatever I should be looking in.

Thanks for any ideas.
