Please take a look at ELRepo's FAQ #4 ( http://elrepo.org/tiki/FAQ )
and determine the vendor:device ID pairing. It will help you find an
appropriate driver.



That seemed to be a good start.  I determined that there were three
rpm's that satisfied the id pairing :

	kmod-alx-0.0-2.20121003.el6.elrepo.x86_64.rpm	22-Dec-2012 12:32 77K
	kmod-alx-0.0-6.el6.elrepo.x86_64.rpm	17-Jul-2013 21:58 32K	 
	kmod-alx-0.0-7.el6.elrepo.x86_64.rpm	30-Jul-2013 00:58 32K	 

I installed the first one and the system would not boot.  I am in the
process of reinstalling 6.4 and will try the 0.0.7 next.



kmod-alx-0.0.7 was the rpm that worked.  I had to rebuild the entire os,
and then had to add the /etc/sysconfig/network file, but after these
steps I got it to work.

Thanks much for your assistance!!!!!!
