Check to see if you have ifcfg-eth0 in your 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/, and check your route table "route" to see 
if it has been added.

You need to install pop3 separate "imap-4.7-5.i386.rpm" if you are running 
RH6.2, this is on you CD. Then edit your inetd.conf file in /etc and 
uncomment "pop3d" line and or "imapd" too if you want to use that.
