like on xp i go to my nick card and put in an IP how do I do this on mandrake ?
I dont see anywhere in the menu a nic card.
also ifconfig shows me ip's which ip is my actual external ip ?
I am not sure in XWindows but in terminal you can go to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and find the file ifcfg-eth0, enter your ip there, it should be like this :
save it, and type /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
then type ifconfig, you saw your ip there. then try to reboot your system.
also another question when someone else is loggd into my box
type w in your command prompt and you can he login from where and what he is doing right now.
All said just now was done in terminal coz i don't use XWindows so i don't know how to use it in XWindows
