Well, I've torn down the firewall, have no proxies, tried Lynx, Links, Netscape, Mozilla, etc., connected as root, logged on as user, checked permissions, checked the path, and still I can't connect to the internet as user.
I don't want to have to connect to the net as root and I'd really rather not have to boot into M$ to get online. Can somebody recommend a different way to connect from Linux?
I am using Slackware 9.0, SBC-Yahoo DSL, Realtek NIC. I am currently using Roaring Penguin's <www.roaringpenguin.com
> rp-pppoe-3.5 package to get the adsl link up.
