Could you be a little more precise please? To start with:

-Exactly what config command?
-What make/model of card?
-What driver does it use?
-How are you connecting to the Net (dial-up, cable modem, DSL, through a LAN, etc.)?

sorry , i am using a d=link 530 ethernet card, cox cable. i hae come to a conclusion that my ethernet card may not be compatible, thought it works with other linux distros, red hat , suse, slackware. i also cannot get my commands to work from the terminal, always no command or file found.

When I installed Debian on a system using a D-Link DFE-530TX (not 530TX+ or 530TXS) I had to install the via-rhine kernel module. This is more automated in a Red Hat/Mandrake install.

Dont all Linux distros come with the same windowmanagers? If not you can always download them and install them which means all Linux distros can have their desktops configured to look the same as any other distro...
In other words Debian desktop = Slack desktop = RH desktop and so on..

Correct me if im wrong, but thats my reasoning...
