Description of problem:
Installed RHEL 4 successfully on a dual boot Compaq deskpro (EN series). Installed all of up2date recommended patches except new kernel patch. Installed Oracle 10g. Rebooted to Windows 2K workstation. Rebooted to RHEL and network on eth0 will not come up. Go to System-config-network and try to activate interface, but receive message "Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ingnoring". Go Edit, Hardware tab to verify the MAC address, Probe returns errno 19 - no such device. I have verified that the MAC address is correct, and have verified that the NIC is working (boot to W2k and no problem). I have tried "#service network restart", but this fails also. Ifconfig does not recognize the interface.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Applications, system settings, network
2. click Activate button
Actual Results: Receive message "Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ingnoring"
Expected Results: activate eth0 interface
