dhcppc3 boot error message
i am very very new to linux (about 12hrs) so i apologies if this is a dumb question
i'm running fedora core 2, and whenever i login (as a user and as root) i get the following error:
"could not look up Internet address for dhcppc3. This will prevent GNome from operating correctly. It may be possible to correct by adding dhcppc3 to the file etc/hosts."
(I am sharing a cable connection with my flat-mates using a netgear router, which assigns ip addresses via dhcp)
what does this mean?
what to I edit in the hosts file?
Thanks in advance
