ethernet active, but no access to internet


Hi,
I'm running RH9. Everything seems to work, but I can't get internet to function properly. In neat, i've set-up a eth0 connection using dhcp. I can activate it without complaints, but there simply is no network when it is active. When I use /sbin/ifup eht0 it says: "Determining IP information for eth0...iptables: No chain/target/match by that name done. Iptables: bad rule (does a matching rule exist in that chain?)"
I've had all this working before and reinstalled RH9 recently, but can't seem to figure out what has changed inbetween.
Any answers?

cheers
rick

--Sorry, I've found out the answer.
I didn't provide the dhcp hostname information and did not check the box which makes sure the dns info is obtained from the provider (although I would swear i did!

Aparently, I'm up and running again. I just don't understand it. And now, MSN works with GAIM. I haven't updated the version or changed anything. What happened?
