The only place you shoul
need to put your proxy settings is in the Mandrake Control Center. I'm not sure where it ceomes in on the menu, but if you run drakconf
you get it.
Oh, and Welcome to LQ. Sorry if I came over a bit harsh, but the LQ rules really aren't that long, and even when you're typing in your problem, it states (on the left) 'Please don't post this in more than one forum
'. Glad to hear it won't happen again
