Ive been at it for a long time... reading, trying things out. Ive searched the forums in and out and still cant seem to get slack online.
I have two computers, one windows xp (the computer with the dsl connection), the other my slackbox. I was told that if i installed two ethernet cards into my xp computer, then i could use a cat 5 ethernet cable to connect the two pc's. I did this and used windows's network connection wizard, set it up for "This computer will connect to the internet and other computers will connect through it." I then went to my slack computer and ran "adsl-setup". It prompts me for my username, password, dns servers (i had to call for these), and if i would like to connect to eth0, i read that i need to connect to eth1 if im connecting through another computer. So this is what i set it as. I then start the internet on my xp computer, then type "adsl-start" on the slackware computer (without the " "). I'm not sure if it does anything because it jumps from:
i type adsl-status and i get an error saying that there is no connection up. Not sure exactly why its doign this. Im not even sure if my method would work at all. Please please help me out...
