Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who contributes to this forum, and to linux in general, especially when it is about teaching 1+1 to newbies like me
) I believe that the "source" of opensource lies not in the code, but within people who proliferate knowledge freely...
My workplace has 3 computers. We've installed Mandrake 9.1 to one and 9.2 to the other. The one which is totally windows uses a program called Wingate to dynamically give ip's.
We can't seem to get the eth0 running on Mandrake 9.2. I tried the "noapic" thing in lilo (in worked in 9.1, but, alas, nothing. I've been reading on threads about someone else who uses a realtek eth card. But I can't run some of the commands... I think the card is realtek but is says tulip here.
One more thing. We used a command to give the computer a static ip, and now the eth is up, but even though we installed smb client and all that, we can't see the other computers.
I would be grateful if someone could help out here... My aim is to get rid of Windows completely within the workplace in a few weeks.
)))) Go linux...
