DSL Configuration Problems


I can't seem to get Mandrake 9.1 to retain its DSL configuration.

I can set my ip configuration and get Mandrake to connect. But when I disconnect and then reconnect, I have to go through the whole process of setting up my DSL connection.

Maybe someone could tell me how I should setup my DSL? Any help would be much appreciated.

Jim

I was able to successfully connect on Mandrake with Verizon DSL after a couple of hours of research, so i will tell what i did finally

Step 1
1. Install the rp-pppoe package from the mandrake cd. I hope u know how to do this.

2. Then follow the steps given at this link

note: i entered "server" when it asked for DNS server.

Hope this helps.
