okay, on my journey with linux i have run into yet another problem. ive got linux on my machine and have it running well. on my goals to make this a proxy server i have run into an obstacle in just the first step. ive got redhat installed, mandrake was having issues with the setup, but i have redhat installed now and im trying to get the internet working. i have good old road runner(every time i make a change they piss me off), but during bootup it is saying that eth0 is not recognizing an ip, and i know that there is a connection coming to the linuxbox, but how do i get it to recognize it? help!
yeah, i know it was a 0 not an o, just a typo. ill try that very soon. i have to go hook up my grandmothers printer. if i get that up and running how do i then get the two computers i have that are running xp pro and home to work on it as a proxy?
i know the card works becuase i used it in my other computer before. in my first bt of learning to network, i used it. it worked just fine. it is registering in linux, but the other one is not. its a dud, or just the fact its an older one and is using one of the odler type of slots, the one before pci. i can get another pci network card, but first, this one has to be on the internet. lol. joyous. so, got any ideas with the new information provided?
where do i put the code? ive tried it in console and it goes on this whole bash error doesent recognize ramble. where do i do that? should i just go to the regular console by doing the ctrl alt f1 switch? im also just taking the older network card out and re-installing redhat with just the server settings ect.. im gonna use gnome or just x. hey, i actually sound like i know what im doing. yaya. alright, thanks a bunch, leave me where i should type that in so i can get better
