Ok I finally decide to install linux and everything wet well besides some partitions issues that I already solved. Now I'm trying to get the net to work.
My problem is that I while back I had serious problems with my connection and my ISP gave me a static (fixed) IP address, and that solved the problem. In the process the made me change the MAC address of the NIC on W XP, wich is very simple, and told me not to change it or my IP will change also. I found that If I change the MAC adress from NIC my ISP don't give me service. So now the wuastion is, how can I set up my NIc on linux? (Slackware 9.1) I tried netconfig and DHCP (wich should be the correct option) detects everything but since my MAC address is not the same my IP is diferent and I cant surf the web. I tryed to change it using ifconfigeth0 hw ether <MAC adress> but it doesn't work.
Any Idea? maybe I missed something? thanks in advance
