Exclamation Mandrake 9.1, trouble connecting to internet.

I have an broadband internet connection on eth0. When i was running redhat 8.0, i set it to be configured by DHCP in the during the install and had no problems whatsoever, it detected the connection and set it up for me. No such luck with mandrake 9.1. Compared to the network setup on red-hat i find the mandrake internet configuration tool confusing. I know all my ISP settings but nothing seems to be working for me, i've been trying to fix this for about 7 hours now, someone please help!

Try to do it direclty, not with Madrake tools...

You should have somewhere a network/interfaces where you can just put those lines :

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Then ru, as root :

ifup eth0

And you should be connected to the Net... You will be automatically connected next time you boot.

To find the file, run, as root :

find /etc | grep "network/interfaces$"

For more information :

man interfaces ifup
