I can't get the internet to work. I have an old 266mhz Cyrix machine running Windows 98 SE Internet Connection Sharing to share its direct connection to a cable modem. Corel worked fine with the shared connection, but Mandrake has had some problems. We don't use DHCP, which is why its a little tricky..
In Windows, I use TCP/IP and IPX/SPX, "Client for Microsoft Networks," with IP 192.168.0.2, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.0.1, and DNS enabled with DNS Server Searchorder being 24.88.1.66 and 24.88.1.67.. Then I just let IE do auto-proxy detect and it worked fine. Now how do I put these settings into Mandrake 8?

Seyon,

I don't use Mandrake, but it seems like you can use netconf while logged in as root.

Also, look at this web page. Looks like it's full of great info on configuring your Mandrake network.
