Live CD internet connection: where to look?
I have a fixed PC running windows xp connection via adsl modem to the internet. I have a linux laptop connected via nw card and cable to the fixed pc.
I have a bunch of live CDs, mainly knoppix derivatives, and I run them on the laptop. Now, some seem to find the internet connection and some don't (I have a feeling my adsl has a dhcp server)
Where can I look to verify the "connected" live CDs configuration, so I can then apply it to the "unconnected" live CDs?
I mean I type ifconfig eth0, and that just gives me status. I've tried to ifup eth0 on the unconnected ones, but no go.
Any pointers on this issue for someone weak on the whole networking thing?
