hmm, i just went to my router config site. my dhcp server is enabled.

my connection type is dynamic.


i am not worrying about pclinuxos,



i was checking around the system configuration and harddrive and hardwares. i have made a mistake in pointing out that my 2nd harddrive is 186 gigs ( not that it makes a big difference from 240). and my main harddrive is 40 gigs.

i have a 512 MB RAM, so ya sry if i didnt give this information.

my only main concern is that, since LIVE CD like you said should have the internet working automatically, and that i have to manually configure in my livecd to make it work, so

how do i do that?

also, my other concern is, if it safe for me to backup my datas into the 2nd harddrive, will that not be affected during the partion? i dont have much in my 2nd harddrive..i could delete it ..its all movies..i dont need it and i can easily store my data into a dvd-r or usb.

thanx for helping me along brendon. i hope we can work this out!

oh ya i also want to use the vmware server on ubunto os

oh ya again..lol..just want let you know that my main harddrive (40 gig) is a FAT32.

im so sry if i havent give out that much details!

yes, i have figured out most of things now.

only thing i am trying to figure out is the internet connection on my desktop.

see i have a router and wired ethernet card so that my dsl and cable modem are connected to cable box and router.

since people said that when u put in the livecd, the internet should be connected automatically, mine doesn't. so i am trying to figure this one out.

that's what i am trying to figure out. Most of the stuff i got it. but the internet is what keeping me from installing the distro.

can anyone help me out? my DHCP is enabled and my IP is dynamic.

thanx!

You are returned to the command line means the command executed successfully. Try sudo ifconfig. It will show you information about your internet connection. Look for inet addr, next to it will be your ip address.

Open up your browser and try to visit a website or try to ping a website.
Code:
ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com
Tux,

Post output of the following commands, nobody can help you if we can't see what you are doing.

Code:
sudo lspci -v
Code:
sudo lsmod
Code:
sudo ifconfig
