Unhappy Internet not working in fedora 8 after an overnight yum update

Hello all...My network connection was working fine until one night when I started the usual yum updatesd .Since then I have'nt been able to connect to the internet...the icon in the system tray has turned red and says "No Network Connection" ...When I click activate on eth0 under devices tab I get the following error

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Invalid argument Failed to bring up eth0


Please help me to get internet working...Many thanks in advance.

very hard to say what exactly is wrong, but what happens when you manually try to configure eth0? Do you still see your network card?

Something like as root

ifconfig eth0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

When grub loads at boot time, you should be able to select the previous kernel from there.

sugantha, what was the last version of working kernel? I would like to installed it manually but I need the version so I match the nvidia module and install that too.
