Hello,

Also it would help if "dmesg" output immedietly after the reboot,
"lscpci -vv" and one of the ifcfg-eth files can posted along with info
mentioned in the previous mail.

With regards,
Narendra K

Hi,

you could take a look at whether the driver is loaded, etc.

$ lsmod |grep bnx

$ modinfo bnx2

$ cat /etc/modprobe.conf

If the driver module is not in memory, then you need to load it
(modprobe bnx2).

But then again, it may be a problem with ifconfig.   Check that you have
the eth0,eth1 configured to startup.

$ ifconfig

$ ifup eth0 ...

Paul

nothing special in grub:
