seems what i removed kinda messed that up
i know stupid is as stupid does,
but drakconf is not there
and neithe rare those nice menus that have all the configs,
basically its a mandrake box without gnome now
and yah i tried to reinstall it but that never worked and to give you an idea.
Ive installed hundreds a pps before with no issues and know my way about
i had linux on htis box and i should have kept it ...
could have imaged over the parts missing by using a direct bridge serially.
was convient to have all XP machines on network as thy others locally here had htem, and the boxes i owned were configed with cable in mind.
unfortuanetly i really have to do a manual internet connection for mandrake linux
having not done one in 12 months as i never had ANY ... probs. LOL had the os online 9 months straight as a webserver game server etc...
i need ot be able to connect to my modem which also acts as a dchp server(aka a adsl modem)
like xp it needs to be able to get the ip address from the dchp server (in this case the speadstream 6620 modem/router)
i know its ip addy is 192.168.2.1
my xps internal ip addy is .10 and im told it gives out from 10-99 for internal ips
what files would i need ot modify to do this?
Thanks for your patience, im a real crappy writer....
