I just installed SuSE Linux 8.0 Professional. It would not boot from the CD-ROM, but I finally got it to boot from the floppy, then mounted the CD-ROM. Everything loaded OK, and I configured the network card. No problems here.
I have a cable modem, connected through a USB port. I did not configure the modem, but was able to access the Internet (www.eBay.com
) just fine. I shut down the machine, but when I restarted the next day, I got a message that DHCP could not get an IP address. I cannot access the Internet, nor send and receive mail. The network card is still configured, but the modem is not. I get an "unknown host" message if I try to access the net.
Internet access is no problem on Windows on the same machine. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
