A complete Linux newb with question
Ok, I did a search...and can't find anything on this...so here goes.
Running Mandrake 9.1 on a dual mp 1200 Tyan Tiger s2460 mobo, 80 gig Seagate Hard Drive, cd rom, 512 megs of RAM, TNT2 32 meg vid card, and a Dlink network card.
Mandrake install went very well, seems to have autodetected everything...yeah Mandrake!
Little interjection...I'm a MS guy, have been for a long time. I wanted to give Linux a try, and Mandrake was offered up as the easiest to learn. I have a pair of 1 gig machines that I'm planning on putting some other distru's on if I ever get teh hang of all this.
So I've got it all installed, and go to set up the network connection and internet. Set it up as a static address, on a 24 bit network, same as the rest of my network...and it won't connect. This is using the expert and wizard mode of setup.
I can get to Yahoo.com, but no other sites that I"ve tried.
I can only guess it doesn't have DNS entries...as I've not been able to locate them yet...
Can someone point me in the right direction here?
