Well not me personally but after pursuing many differnt tutorials and hints on the web I came across this:
"xs4all.nl/~pschram/english.html" (with the ww's but as this is my first post I can't post complete urls duh!)
All the files you need are listed here and the process is explained very simply. (I am a new guy !)
For all you other new guys out there a few things that are obvious once you think about it
1. Kernel only after readin this process did I realise it may not be installed I checked in the mandrake software center and sure enough kernel-source was not installed ( I had assumed it would have installed it self when I set up the OS)
Then I came to a problem I followed the steps but because I had been following other methods and using drakeconnect I got the error message on boot which relates to a network script file and saying "speedtouch.sh" not found!
To fix this log in as a root and loading SYSv Inint editor .
Select the internet module and edit it
Now if you have followed the steps from the link above you should have the files "ip-iup" and "ip-down" in the etc/ppp/ directory.
I copied these to the netowrk scripts directory and used replace all occurences of net_cnx_up with ip-up and like wise with the down one i figured these were the comands to invoke the loging on and off the net at boot.
And now it works
Yes all you pros its lenghty and lacks jargon I persisted for a few hours each night this week trying doffernt things now i've cracked it thanks to help from well everbody really!
