OK well can you tell us what happens when you open firefox.

Also try going on the control centre and looking around to see what you can do its quite self explainatory.

I got Linux installed, although a lot of packages were not installed because it said there was "an error" installing the packages. At first I said it wasn't found, but it really says that there was an error installing package. I installed it, but I can't get the internet to work. If I could get the internet to work, then everything would be solved. Please don't tell me my 802.11g Wireless PCI adapter made by Linksys cannot be used by Linux. If this is true, could a 802.11g Wireless USB adapter work?

Also, my first priority is the internet, but are there any applications that can make an ISO image be faked as a CD-ROM? Because then I can transfer the ISO image and install the packages that failed, and some that I didn't select to see if that was the problem.

Linux is already great without the internet, let's see how good it is with the internet!

This is EXACTLY what I am experiencing. My install of 10.0 Official produced errors and although it seems it is up and running (and recognizes my ethernet card) I cannot access my router or anything else.)

I configured the built-in LAN for DHCP. As I refreshed my DHCP server "clients window," I can see the new Mandrake MAC address appear and disappear from the clients list on the DHCP server while the network is restarting on the Mandrake box. This tells me that Mandrake is able to at least talk to the DHCP server (if only for a second.) After the Mandrake box has restarted the LAN, it can ping itself, but nothing else (not even the DHCP server.)

I dissabled the built-in LAN and tried a network card I had in the old server (a previous version of Mandrake) and get exactly the same results (found the card, but could not ping anything but itself.)

I tried a fixed IP address (I would prefer this) and got similar results.

Explain?

That made me laugh. I agree it made little sense to me.

On the subject of Alacritous' prievious post. Burning CD's can be a hit miss game. I suggest that if you can try to reburn the CD's and do so at a low speed and choose to verify the data (you can in most windows programs). Then try to install missing packages. I'm not sure how much this will help but its worth a shot, plus having the packages will hold in good stead for the future.

The CD's I burned are causing the same warnings/errors as others are experiencing during installation.

Although the network hardware is recognized, I cannot ping other devices.

From the DHCP server, I can see the Mandrake box attempting to connect via DHCP to the DHCP server (the MAC address appears once or twice during the eth0 restart.)

I tried the built-in lan on the motherboard as well as a separate card I have used before and neither worked.

Neither DHCP or a fixed IP address work.

I also fail to spot the link. Alacritous, I suggest you try one of the following:
- Burn the CD's again
- Download knoppix or some other live distro to see if the net will work
- Try a different distro (I hear that Fedora is easy to use, also give yopper a look)

I'm not sure why you would do that. Just install it by overwriting the mandrake partitions.
