Mandrake 9.2 Cable internet
Ok I am recently new to Linux. I have drake 8.1,9.2, and RedHat 7.2
I am Dual Booting drake 9.2, and XP Home.
My Pc is:
MoBo: Matsonic MS8147C
Video: Nvidia GeForce 5200
Cpu: AMD Athlon XP 2400+
Mem: 512 megs
2 hard drives
DLink Ethernet card
Mandrake 8.1 has no problems connecting to the internet but i cant use my nvidia card the 8.1 or rh7.2.
With drake 9.2 i can get everything to work but i cant connect to the internet. i have messed with my ifconfig.eth0 i have tried to manually set the configurations.nothing i try or i have read from previous posts has worked. While booting up my eth0 tries to ping or connect to 127.255.255.255. Why? i tried to set up my ip my subnet my dns, for my cable isp, and still nothing.
I really cant stand windows I loved drake 8.1 but i will not use it because i like my video card better and it works with 9.2.
Any suggestions on how i can get 9.2 to connect to the net?
