If I'm not mistaken Red Hat does not bring up network interfaces in
single-user mode (e.g., if you boot Linux with 'linux single<return>' from
the 'lilo boot:' prompt). The reason this happens is that you set up an
ethernet network during installation with incorrect settings. It WILL time
out eventually if you are patient :-).
