Well, I've torn down the firewall, have no proxies, tried Lynx, Links, Netscape, Mozilla, etc., connected as root, logged on as user, checked permissions, checked the path, and still I can't connect to the internet as user.
I don't want to have to connect to the net as root and I'd really rather not have to boot into M$ to get online. Can somebody recommend a different way to connect from Linux?
I am using Slackware 9.0, SBC-Yahoo DSL, Realtek NIC. I am currently using Roaring Penguin's <www.roaringpenguin.com> rp-pppoe-3.5 package to get the adsl link up.

Can you ssh or ftp to some other host as a root? as a normal user?
Did you check out RoaringPenguin's FAQ on rp-pppoe?

Unfortunately, I'm not sure what ssh is. Haven't tried anything with ftp yet.

Yes, the only thing it says about connecting and not being able to browse, is to check the DNS settings. Could it be the permissions for that? I haven't checked that.

Well, I totally screwed up my display today. Didn't know exactly what I did or how to fix it. Re-installed Slack and now everything works! I'm browsing as user!

ssh is a secure, encrypted remote login program. If you ever need to connect to the outside world and would use telnet, try ssh instead.
