I found this in the Debian manual that might be a little easier to understand or at least start from:

Code:
To configure networking, edit /etc/network/interfaces, /etc/resolv.conf, and etc/hostname.

      # editor /etc/network/interfaces

Here are some simple examples from /usr/share/doc/ifupdown/examples:

     ######################################################################
     # /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
     # See the interfaces(5) manpage for information on what options are 
     # available.
     ######################################################################
     
     # We always want the loopback interface.
     #
     auto lo
     iface lo inet loopback
     
     # To use dhcp:
     #
     # auto eth0
     # iface eth0 inet dhcp
     
     # An example static IP setup: (broadcast and gateway are optional)
     #
     # auto eth0
     # iface eth0 inet static
     #     address 192.168.0.42
     #     network 192.168.0.0
     #     netmask 255.255.255.0
     #     broadcast 192.168.0.255
     #     gateway 192.168.0.1

Enter your nameserver(s) and search directives in /etc/resolv.conf:

      # editor /etc/resolv.conf

A simple /etc/resolv.conf:

     # search hqdom.local\000
     # nameserver 10.1.1.36
     # nameserver 192.168.9.100

Enter your system's host name (2 to 63 characters):

      # echo DebianHostName > /etc/hostname

If you have multiple network cards, you should arrange the names of driver modules in the /etc/modules file into the desired order. Then during boot, each card will be associated with the interface name (eth0, eth1, etc.) that you expect.

I actually think my I.Q. has DROPPED, having read that.
Sorry, man.
I'm glad my math teachers in elementary school didn't try to teach me trig. when I didn't even know how to add, because that's what every Linux helpsite out there, and every reply that I've recieved at Linuxquestions.org (exept most of yours) has ammounted to.

You're the only person that's been able to talk to me in English.
If I could understand anybody elses replies, I wouldn't need to ask the questions in the first place.

This Absolutely Sucks

[I give up!
I'm going to bed.
I cant see TRYING in Linux for 5 DAYS, what I can accomplish in Wimdows in 5 MINUTES!
Linux is Abso-f**king-lutely rediculous!
Right now I'm so mad, I could smash that machine into pieces and actually feel good about the money loss it would create.
and right now (despite my desire to learn) I F**king HATE Linux. [/B]
Well...Keep cool and consider that when all will be fine on your linux box you'll be very happy for the job done and ready to experiment a lot of interesting stuff.
Of course I'm also disappointed but never give up.

Have a good sleep!
