Yeah... Well lets start out with this little emoticon on the left which describes me in my entirety
Alright so this is my first post here, and go figure, is asking for advice... I've seen quite a few places reccomending I install Gentoo. So I downloaded the Universal ISO and burned it, and booted it up to start. I wanted to do a network installation, but theres a problem: My eth0 isn't working... I've tried to follow what the handbook says, but for some reason it doesn't want to work... I use a DHCP server, but I also tried manually putting in all of my IP info, as well...
The driver it wants me to use: mii.o
My nic: Cnet PRO200WL PCI fast
When I tell it to use DHCP: Any time I put in a domain name, it tells me host not found... And when I put in an IP, it's something like host unreachable
When I manually input my info(using net-setup eth0): When I put in a domain name, it times out... When I put in an IP, it can't reach the host(With ping - I tried pinging the gateway)
Right now I'm posting on Windows XP and I have Mandrake 10 installed(Mandrake connects to the internet fine)... So if theres any other information you need, I can try and get it... I know my DHCP's IP address, but I don't know how to put that in manually, or if it would help
