Smile ethernet config with Mandrake Single Network Firewall

i am quite the newbie, even though i have read the How to and
the manual (the manual is barebone on the network/internet portion) i still have a question to offer:

can someone offer a little advice on mandrake's single network

i am lucky to live in hawaii, where ethernet is the norm, and so
i am behind a linksys router/switch (4 port) in order to share
internet access to a roomate. the linksys has DHCP server
enabled and both mandrake 8.0 and w2000 can access the
internet yet i am stumped by mandrake snf

so really i guess i am trying to put SNF inbetween 2 LANs-one somewhat secure and the wild internet on the other

the thing is dhcp doesnt seem to work and neither just picking
from the apparantly safe range of to .254
because the LAN network from the router is

at the proxy screen i have tried saying ok to nothing in the fields
to also having tried hitting cancel

at one point, i could access the local LAN from w2000 to the
http screen on the linux box, but have since lost that since
trying another combo and not writing down exactly
what i had---rats! now no lan access

i have installed this distro now close to 20 times with no
success and the web is coming up short of info this time

any ideas?

Lightbulb SNF

Did you make sure to add your client machines (ip addresses/range) to the ACL?

I have SNF providing DHCP to half my machines & running statically assigned addresses on the other half.

As soon as you start enabling the filtering features, you have to make sure that the IPs for your client/workstation machines are entered as allowed to access the 'Net.

Sorry, I guess this post might be moot at this point...I would probably have given up & tried another product by now.
