Network Installing Debian: DHCP isn't working.
 
I'm trying to install Debian for my father on his computer to dual boot with Windows XP. Problem is, at the beginning of the installation when tries to set up DHCP, it dosen't work. We have Comcast cable, and I know that it uses DHCP that does not require a hostname. On the already installed Windows, DHCP is working fine. And yes, I did try retrying it. So I have no idea what I can do. I would like any and all help.

have you confirmed that it works with, for example, a live cd (knoppix, etc.)??

Checked...
 
I went and checked with an Ubuntu liveCD, and yes it did work.

Maybe I should just install Ubuntu instead. MY dad dosen't care what distro I install, I just wanted to use the one that I use on my computer.

Does Debian detect your nwtowrk card correctly? What does ifconfig eth0 show?
