Description Martin Poole 2005-06-30 12:12:52 UTC
Description of problem:

In the Reference Guide in Appendix 3 "A.3. Ethernet Parameters" it repeatedly
mentions using /etc/modules.conf  Under RHEL4 these options and configuration
details should be in /etc/modprobe.conf

This applies across all the RHEL4 documentation except, obviously, where it
describes differences from RHEL3

Comment 1 Mike Behm 2006-02-06 16:39:29 UTC
Made fixes in the Reference Guide and the System Administrator's Guide as requested.

Comment 2 Zhenyong(Jerry) Jiang 2006-06-27 14:41:39 UTC
I find "modules.conf" in the following url. and it should be "modprobe.conf".

Comment 4 Michael Hideo 2007-03-07 01:54:31 UTC
