I don't quite like the errors there. I'm know what the errors value
means though.

Are you able to ping by the way?

Have a look at the /proc/pci file (i assume it's a pci card) on both Redhat
an LFS and see if they are using the same resources (IO and IRQ addresses).

Also the RX and TX above are set to 0. So it seems the data isn't even
leaving the network card. This could mean a route problem.

Run "route" on both Redhat and LFS and compare again. they should be the
same (though changes aren't always bad, it depends on the change, so
how about you forward the outputs to us again so we can have a look at
those as well).
