I've found a minor buglet with ifconfig, in that it doesn't display the
devices first time round when you type 'ifconfig', for eg:

[root@mint /tmp]# ifconfig
: error fetching interface information: Device not found
[root@mint /tmp]# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:90:27:36:xx:xx
          inet addr:203.24.x.x  Bcast:203.24.x.247  Mask:
          RX packets:21875834 errors:1 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:23072163 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:13 carrier:49911
          collisions:107366 txqueuelen:100
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0xe800

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Mask:
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:3924  Metric:1
          RX packets:1534 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:1534 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0

This is using a fully patched RH6.0 system with 2.2.5-22 kernel RPM. Eth0
is an eepro100 (with multicast_filter_limit set to 3).
