About to connect RH9 to web. Go?
TIA for any help. I've just installed RH9 on a standalone Dell Dimension L600r desktop, as its only op system. It's running fine. I'm about to connect my DSL modem's CAT-5 cable to the system's only NIC interface (which RH seemed to recognize just fine, calling it Eth0, if I remember correctly from a few hours ago.)
I'm a real newbie, so I'm wondering, is there anything obvious (to you) that I'm about to screw up? Do I have a bunch of configuring to do that I don't even know about yet? (I was hoping maybe the PPPOE connection will be somewhat automagically configured by a PnP-type process--I hope I'm not pissing everyone off already.)
My ISP is SBC. I've yet to call them to see if they even 'allow' Linux to connect (maybe they don't/can't know or care what op system(s) their customers run.)
