eth0 static config for Sarge net install


Hi

I am trying to install Sarge, but the caveat is that I am in a network requiring static IP, so the DHCP net install is useless unless I can get my eth0 interface working. Even a CD install will probably leave me with same issues in the end so I ask now.

Problem: I am getting a SIOCADDRT: network is unreachable although eth0 is configured and up. Here is the status of my system:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:8D:4C:37:18
inet addr:172.16.77.26 Bcast:172.16.255.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

(note: I set resolv.conf to the correct values already)

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)

I have an Abit Athlon MB with the annoying nVidia chipset but on the first stage of install Debian Installer recognized it and gave me the forcedeth driver, which I added to mu modules.conf like this:

alias eth0 forcedeth


But, still I cannot reach the internet. Anyone have an analysis of what may be wrong??

thanks
