Help me get online with Suse
This is my 3rd attempt at getting started with Linux. The first 2 ended in frustration because I could not connect to the internet. Now I am at the same juncture. I have successfully installed Suse 9.1 on a pentium system running XP. I have a cable modem connected by ethernet. When I boot to XP I am on line.
In YaST2 my ethernet card is recognized. As far as I can see I use DHCP.
My ISP hangs up when I mention linux.
I went into config and tried entering some IP addresses and such that I copied out of Windows settings, but I really don't know what I am doing.
This is frustrating because I want to begin the process of learning Linux, but I want to be online when I begin so I can use the help resources therein, but I cannot get online, so I cannot get past page one.
Any advice would be welcome.
