It might be insufficient - and probably he has correct
module listed in appropriate place (might be
/etc/conf.module in RH) provided "ifconfig eth0 up" works.
But if the booting goes through mounting of initrd, you
have to regenerate initrd with "mkinitrd", at least on RH
But isn't it possible to complete eth down/up process on
both running linux-boxes and to get link functioning?
