[SOLVED] howto activate the NIC in CentOS 6.4?

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I have the MSI 970A-G43 up and running with the old HDDs from my CentOS 6.4 server. Everything seems to be fine EXCEPT the NIC. After digging the googles it turns out the RealTek onboard NIC is a royal PITA for Linux in general especially for my kernel: 2.6.32-358.14.1.e16.x86_64 SMP I picked up a PCIe Intel 10/100/1000 NIC that should work in my system, but I can not get it to run. Again hitting the googles i found the drivers for my kernel, but i dont have the devel packages for my kernel. Is there something more I need to do to fix my system to get the NIC running? Here is my /etc/sy (HowTos)
