Starting eth0 at boot time ?
I have installed Simply Mepis. Seems to work fine.

Had some problems connecting to the internet, but that has been resolved also.
One inconvenience remains, my ethernet card does not start at boot time. I have to start it manually each time from KDE by

K>System>MepisUtils.>Mepis Sys. Center>NetworkInterfaces>START ETH0

What configuration file, and how ? / where can be modified ? to get the
eth0 started at boot time?

TIA for any help/pointers. Antonius

Make sure /etc/network/interfaces has "auto" for eth0. Mine looks like this:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
