Oops ... thought that was the result
of what MasterC had suggested ...

The file is actually empty?
Hard to believe ... did the draknet
config process die on you or what?

Cheers,
Tink

Well, I'm sorry mate, I can't help you on from
here ... I'm not familiar enough with the Micky-
Mouse-Distro, specially with the more recent
releases, to navigate you blind-folded... (don't
know the graphical tools, and can't stand SysV
init-scripts ...)

Good luck, anyway.

Cheers,
Tink

Oops, that was meant as an answer for post #30 in this thread. Forum mislead me here, I thought it was the last post...

http://masterc.no-ip.org/tutorials/DHCP.html

I'll explain the pictures to you...
The first one you should look at is:
standard.png
This is the first screen. It's a fresh install, and although it's 9.0 the rules haven't changed much, everything should still apply.
The second one:
Software2.png
This is showing you where to go to in the Mandrake Control Center (which is the eighth icon over on the taskbar in my screenshot)
Click the connection icon and...
Network1.png
Should appear. At this point choose the wizard button at the bottom, you should now see:
Network2.png
Click the Auto Detection square, and then next, now we see:
network3.png
Here you will click on ADSL connection, and then click next:
network4.png
Make sure you've got the "use bootp/dhcp" checked. This configures everything for you. Now click next:
network5.png
Do not enter anything for your hostname, just click next:
network6.png
You need a restart, this will let you get on the internet without restarting the entire computer and just the network:
network7.png
Click finish of course
network8.png
The blackbox should actually contain a real IP, and have DHCP where mine shows lan. The important part is "connected" should be what you have showing.
And then in the white box below that, your IP address should again be a real IP (mine is fake) and your Protocol should say "dynamic" or "DHCP"
Ultimately, it should say "up".
If all this is working, click apply, and then OK.

Open up a browser and see if it works, if not, post back.

Cool

What is the result of:
dhcpcd
Is there an error, or does it just put you back at a prompt? Oh, you type that into a terminal, and you do it as root

Also, what do you do to get on the internet in your alternate OS? Just turn on your computer and you are on? Did you have to do anything special when setting it up initially that you remember?

And finally, can you post up the contents of your /etc/modules.conf file for us?

Thanks

Cool

That's always one way

You are welcome anytime to post up future issues you have I'm personally a mandrake lover at heart, and have Mandrake 9.0 installed on my machine here, so I tend to be able to help out a bit more with those questions (although I run Gentoo and Slackware as my main distros now).

Cool
