can't connect suse 8.* to the Internet


hi,
this is my first post here... i'm newbie to linux..hope that you'll help me guys. i have suse 8.* (i think it's 8.1) installed on my system and a winXp.. i'm connected to the internet through a hub of another computer. my xp can connect to the internet but my suse can't. i've noticed that eth0 failed to initialize or fails when linux boots... one thing i've done to it is that i've change it's lan driver from rhine to rhinefet. i think that's all

praise

I'd connect to the internet with XP and download a much newer version of Suse. Suse 10.1 is now a stable and very good product, and Suse 10.2 is released this week. Try one of those and then see if you can connect.

I'm not a mandrake user, but some distros don't have NTFS support. You can download packages that do read NTFS partitions though. I used Fedora Core 1 for a while and that didn't have NTFS support, but after downloading and installing some files (can't remember what) it read my windows partition nicely.

The driver for NTFS support is compiled into the kernel. Some distros, including Red Hat/Fedora don't include this driver in their standard kernels. You can obtain the driver from a third party package or recompile your kernel to include NTFS support.
