Add hardware in RHEL 4 on IBM Power

www.unixbabuforum.inI am using RHEL 4 on IBM Power p5 570. 
I already have one 2-port ethernet card asigned to system and now i want to add one more 2-port ethernet card. 
I need help to achieve this as I am new to RHEL and I know how to do this in AIX.

www.unixbabuforum.inafaik, IBM power p5 570 supports rhel4, so just add the hardware. kudzu usually detects most of the standard hardware. 

www.unixbabuforum.injust attach the NIC to the available bays and the driver should automatically install upon reboot. 
Once you are in the OS go to the Red Hat icon > System Settings > Network . THe Network Configuration Page will display.Click New and click Ethernet Connection option. THe prompts should be self explanatory.

www.unixbabuforum.inIf you activate "kudzu" and device driver of NIC exist, "kudzu" will load 
device driver by "insmod" 
otherwise, you must find proper device driver for NIC ....
