Description of Problem: After the install, the start up freezes on "checking 
for new hardware".  This is caused because it can not recognize the ethernet 
card.  Tried to re-install the ifconfig package but that did not work even 
after intall.  Won't even loop back when trying to send info.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Ethernet card-
Netgear FA311

How Reproducible: Tyan System board with a 750mhz AMD processor.  Netgear 
FA311 ethernet card. System running Grub. C: drive running Windows XP(works 
fine) and D: running Red Hat 7.2. (does not even start up but will if you 
don't allow it to look for the ethernet card). Cable modem is also running.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Linux
2.Start Up
3.Stalls on 'Checking for new hardware'

Actual Results:check above

Expected Results: To get the ethernet card loaded properly because this is a 
very popular ethernet card and to get this machine online.

Additional Information: Please email me asap with a fix to this.

This has nothing to do with the internet-config package, reassigning to kudzu (which is 
what is running when it says "Checking for new hardware").

What happens if you disable the kudzu service, but run 'kudzu -p' after booting?
