looks like your proxy server is broked. And seeing as you didn't even mention a proxy server in any of your preamble.... i think we need some more consistent information.

I think your attitude has pretty much turned anyone off from helping you...however, let me ask the following questions:

1) How are you obtaining an iP address? Are you plugging one in statically or are you getting through DHCP? How do you do it for your windows installation?

2) Do you go through a router to access the internet?

3) Is your ethernet adapter even activated? You can tell by running the ifconfig command. If all you have listed is lo, then your ethernet card is not turned on. Activate the adapter by running ifup eth0.

If you are not satisfied with the help you are getting here, then please contact Red Hat for assistance. If you are running Enterprise WS, then you've obviously paid for a support subscription, right?

If your ethernet interface is active, then double check your DNS settings...see if you can ping anything by IP address instead of hostname.

For cable internet access these days I don't think you really need any special authentication anymore (but that's at my location...not sure about yours). You should be able to connect without having to use anything fancy.

you are clearly being directed through some sort of proxy server, how else do you propose you are getting a proxy auth error???? Outwardly this does not look like a problem, but a problem on your proxy.

quite how you expect to get help when you deny base facts i don't know... and then there's that apparent attitude problem.
