Configuring Boot Process on Mandrake 10 to include command "ifup eith0"
I'm using SiS900 for my NIC. I connect via RJ45 to a hub, then to a cable modem (a shared cable connection with dynamic IP addresses). At every boot, I get "bringing up eth0... FAILED". I have read other threads about the "bringing up eth0... FAILED" issue and have found a way to solve the problem. With some help, I have found that when I log on as root and execute "ifup eth0" my Internet connection will work. So now I must do this tedious step whenever I reboot. My question is: how do incorporate this command into the boot or KDE loading process? My "help" and I cannot figure this out, and have had no luck with any research.
This is my first time working with Linux (overall, an enjoyable experience, except this issue) so please be descriptive with any solutions. Thanks in advance.
