Home Server On A Silver Platter - almost

hi all,
i set up a box with ubuntu DNS/Firewall server per the excellent instructions @ Great article Shane! The ubuntu 9.1 desktop connected to the server says "no valid network connections found" and the live network icon does not appear on the upper right hand corner of the desktop screen. But! when i run ethtool eth0 in the terminal I get "Link detected: yes". I can ping the server and other boxes in my network. I cannot ping the internet. I can ping the internet from the DNS server and another server behind the firewall. thank u!
