trouble configuring networking RHEL4 dell optiplex 280

i'm having trouble configuring networking on a dell optiplex 280. the os i'm
trying to install is RHEL4. i've tried configuring a static hostname and
networking configuration manually by editing /etc/sysconfig/network
/etc/sysconfig/ifcfg-eth0 /etc/hosts /etc/resolv.conf. i've also wiped the
machine and entered the required network information in the graphical
install. the result is the same: i can't ping out to google.com or an ip

i've also tried configuring the machine as dhcp instead of static ip and
hostname - the result is the same, no network connection.

i've verified that my port works - i take the ethernet cable and plug it
into my laptop and it works.

i've double checked my network settings, they are identical to a known
working system.

eth0 shows up in the rhel graphical install, so i'm assuming my card is
supported. my card is Integrated 10/100/1000 Network Card on a dell optiplex
gx280. the redhat hardware site is down so i couldn't confirm this. this is
a pretty standard hardware setup, so i'm fairly certain the card is

are there any sites to configure networking on rhel4? i've been using the
rhel4 manuals. is there anything else i should check?
