ADSL in RedHat 7.3??


During the installation of RH 7.2 you at one point get the question how you want to connect to the internet. There you can choose DHCP. If you check that box the program itself finds your internet connection and makes all the tweaking for you.

When I installed 7.3 I never got that question, and now I wonder. How do I do to get on the internet with my ADSL in RedHat 7.3, using DHCP??

Thanks in advance

you need dhcpcd client installed on your system, and then run
netcfg as root to configure your Ethernet card to DHCP, that's all.
Try /usr/sbin/setup as root and go to Network option.

I tried to use the /usr/sbin/setup to change the network settings. There I found dhchp, as you change, but it doesn't help to check it. Do I have to do anything more?
