very newbie, help with setting up ethernet port on mepis
first, i'm a total newbie at this stuff, so you'll need to walk me through everything step by step...
that said, i can't get my eth0 port started up on mepis 3.10.2003. i go into the MEPIS system center and click on "network interfaces," but my eth0 port is listed as down and cannot collect an ip address from the dhcp server. does this mean i'm missing ethernet controller drivers? how should i get connected?
and i know it's a configuration thing, because this machine is dual-boot and windows networking works fine.
dell inspiron 1100 notebook
20gb hd (12 windows, 7.5 linux)
MEPIS 3.10.2003 linux
