I recently installed a cent0s5 os package and during boot, the init complains that no eth0 was found. When i run ifconfig, only the loop back address is active. I installed all the rpms for the centos starter package but that made no difference. Im assuming its a driver issue?
Probably. There was a minimum RHEL5 "dot rev" required for the BL460c G6's with the Flex 10 LOM. You would, I presume require the corresponding dot rev of CentOS. You might try a web search on "ProLiant linux exception matrix" to find the pages that describe the minimum revs for the supported distros.
