The Pro 1000/XT is newer than Red Hat 7.1, so there is no native support for
this card in this version of linux. You can do any one of several things to
1) the best option: Upgrade to the latest errata kernel for 7.1 from Red
2) Download the driver for the e1000 for RH 7.1 from Dell's support

Subject: Intel Pro 1000/XT problems
I am running into a problem with Intel Pro 1000/XT on a PowerEdge 250 Dell
running RedHat 7.1. I have two Intel NICs, the other one is a built-in Intel
which works fine. I am using the e1000.o that comes with RedHat 7.1.
The problem is that my server doesn't seem to be able to detect the Pro
when I do a "insmod e1000, I got the following errors:
/lib/modules/220.127.116.11smp/kernel/drivers/net/e1000.o: init_module: No such
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
or IRQ parameters.
The Pro 100 NIC has IRQ 11, the Pro 1000/XT has IRQ 5, I am not sure about
the IO parameters.
Your help is appreciated.
