I'm running a dual boot machine, SuSE 8.2, and WinXP.
I use Telus (I live in canada) ADSL, a Linksys etherfast router, and an external Linksys DSL modem.
I have an Intel PRO 100+ ethernet card (not sure if that's what ya call them...) running to the router.
I downloaded SuSE, since I'm too stupid/cheap to buy it. I downloaded the most minimal install I could get (just enough for X), and I got lynx on there.
Here's the trouble: I started up lynx, tried going to http://www.google.com,
and... nothing. I wasn't connected to the internet. I looked around YaST, but have no clue how to set it up (I don't even know what DHCP is, and have a vague idea of how IPs work, so I didn't really know what was going on).
I played around with it for a while, skipped all the stuff I don't understand, hit finish, and it said it needed to install a package... smpppd I think it was.
The problem of course, is that I'm not connected to the internet, so I can't get the package... I've got all the boot disks, and I'm guessing it's on there somewhere, but I don't want to screw up linux... again (I've messed up 3 installs of 2 different distros
could someone help me out? I know windows, but this linux, it confoozes me...
