To create a bonded interface:
- Create a file named ifcfg-bondN in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory, where N is number of the interface, such as 0.
- Edit the contents of ifcfg-bondN to be similar to the configuration settings for an Ethernet interface except that DEVICE is set to bondN rather than ethn, for example:DEVICE=”bond0″
BONDING_OPTS=”bonding parameters separated by spaces”

Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP Address from certain routers or from certain non-Microsoft DHCP servers
Consider the following scenario:
- You connect a Windows Vista-based computer to a network.
- A router or other device that is configured as a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is configured on the network.
- The router or the other device does not support the DHCP BROADCAST flag.
In this scenario, Windows Vista cannot obtain an IP address.
