Description of problem:
Although the beta of RHEL4 was installed, chandev.conf which surely 
existed does not exist in a former version. qeth does not recognize 
it as chandev.conf not existing. Isn't chandev.conf used in a new 
version? Is qeth made to recognize by another file?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.The usual installation

I'm not entirely sure that I understand what you are trying to say.

I'm going to try to repeat back what I think you're saying to make sure I followed.

You're saying that chandev.conf is not being installed in the current version of
s390utils, although it used to be in previous versions, and wondering what is
being used instead? I presume that qeth is what had been using it?

chandev.conf is a kernel-2.4 thing, kernel-2.6 doesn't use 
chandev anymore. 
If you'd like to use an ifcfg-ethX file from RHEL3, you have to 
add/change a few parameters: 
 CHANDEV=qeth0,0x300,0x301,0x302,0,0 from chandev.conf is now   
 configured via the SUBCHANNELS variable in the ifcfg-ethX file: 
 The portname from QETHPARMS is now a new variable in ifcfg-ethX: 
 QETHPARM=add_parms,0x10,0x600,0x602,portname:FOOBAR  is now 
 NETTYPE for qeth interfaces needs to be set to
