Need To Enable Network Connection !.
The test install of CentOS 6.3 server with X Window and Gnome desktop and webmin was killed by me trying to un-install some of the unwanted packages
So I have re-installed from the base install iso disk and like last time it does not set up the network connection (I had to use the repair function of the live CD! ).
Can someone tell me the steps to set it up via CLI please, all I have installed now is the base system and I can log into Root with my password and then I get a flashing cursor # _

is your server being assigned an address via DHCP reservation? or do you need to manually assign it an address?
If your getting a DHCP address, try the two commands below:
ifconfig eth0 up
running ifconfig on its own will give you details of the all interfaces.
for more information on manually assigning details to your network adapter, have a read of:

I cannot open to ' /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0' to edit it !.

by default the network doesn't start on boot.
su to root (type su)
edit the file. with vi/vim/nano/gedit

Thank you, the only one I could get working was 'vi' (I had to google vi to see how to exit and save !).
What I had to do was to cd to the 'network-scripts' directory and use the vi editor to do the changes.
I'm just installing 'X Window System' and then 'Webmin'.
