I have been trying for days now to configure my internet for Mandrake 9.0
Is there a way to get my internet up and running on mandrake 9.0 with a usb that hooks into my cable modem. Redhat 9.0 allows me to connect but in a wierd way and gives me bunches of problems. And dont ask me why i did absolutly nothing, all i did was follow the books orders on how to install redhat and it randomly restarts, logs out and i need to log back in, or freezes, and sometimes during bootup cant find files unlike last bootup when it did.... but im forced to use this glitchy redhat because it automatically configures the internet and very well for my usb connection.
How would i get my usb connection to my cable internet to work on Mandrake 9.0? Ive tried configuring the internet connection in the settings but it asks for a host or somthing without a period... wtf is that. and what do i do!!!!
If i could just get internet on mandrake linux i luuuv mandrake linux'x setup and could get used to it....
Oh and could someone help me out on how to access root??? Im a windows switched to linux user and need help figuring these things out hehe.
