I am using an adsl connection and I want my connectyion to start at startup... But It doesnt because of the drakconf "mandrake 10.0". drakconf automatically changes my network & internet settings...İn managing connections tab I want to use dhcp instead of static... And all the time when I started the computer I have to open the drakconf and change the settings... I started to get an error message "drakconf restarted too many times when gnome is lounched...

You might try posting this in the mandrake forum. Plus if you know what files need to get changed, then if may be that you have to do the edit's by hand in command line or log in as root for changing the files graphically.

Apart for those meagre suggestions I can't help, because that's one of the reasons that I binned my ADSL usb modem and bought an adsl modem/router. Now the device handles the connection and I can change anything I want, I just do whatever and apply the LAN settings.

Sorry I can't be of any real help.
