Hello king_scott_2, well you seem to be making progress, the most
important part is good preparation, write down somewhere all your
gateways and ip addresses including subnet mask you are presently
using these will be required when you configure the eth0 and the ppp0
for your network connections. I myself had several problems with the
configuration. Like everything there is always a way to solve the problem.
I printed out Red Hat Linux 9 Installation Guide Chapter 3
Red Hat Linux x86 Installation Guide found on
the link http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/
and then go to the manuals.
All the best for now, just read as much as you can before you start
and you will find the installation will go smoothly.
Regards Mike C.
