This sounds like a resource conflict with the network card settings
and another piece of hardware in your machine. Please contact Red Hat
technical support at and they can
possible help you work this out.

Nope, this note had installed a RH5.0 allready. There is no special
card bus service with this Bios. The old RH5.0 disks worked with
PCMCIA and the 3c589

Ok, installed Note via PLIP. After rebooting system found my 3c589
without problems! Network works. So IMHO this is your problem ;-)
