Unhappy login help at lunix startup...first time running linux ever


I installed Mandrake Linux on a dual boot pc with xp. Installation was fine. Linux starts up. It says eth0 has failed. what is eth0? Also when i enter my user name (leonid83) and password this shows up.

Kernel2.4.22-10mdk
i686/tty1
leonind83@localhost leonid831$

My question is: how do i get into the linux system with all the icons and stuff?

my user name is leonid 83 for linux no root password

My pc is a celeron 1.7 384 ram radeon9200pci 40gb 3gb for linux
everything else for windows

any help would be appreciated

That would be the command line interface. Providing Mandrake autodetected your video hardware typing startx should get you into your graphical environment.

eth0 is the name for the first networking interface. So what that probably means is your network card wasn't brought up correctly.

The first thing you should to is select a root password. Eth0 is the device name of the ethernet device. If you had another one, it would be eth1. You will need to give us more information, such as the model of the ethernet device. If you type in ŽlspciŽ in a shell and redirect it to a file like this:
Code:
lspci >pci_list.txt
You will get a listing that hopefully will contain an entry like this:
Code:
02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82801BD PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller (rev 82)
Another command to do the same thing with is pcimodules. As an alternative to lspci you could enter lspcidrake as root. This will list the hardware devices present, and the modules that Mandrake selected for these devices.

If you are in X-Windows you could run škdesu drakehardwareš and enter your root password.
Or select hardware in the Mandrake Control Center.

Lastly, check if your cabling is OK, or that your NIC card is snuggly seated (assuming your ethernet interface isnŽt built in).

Did you say 3gb for all of Linux? if so your going to need more than that for everything. You can install but you'll be so limited that you wont get the full Linux experience.

Look in the output of lspci for an entry with PC 0:2:0 in it. It may be the graphics card. Something got deleted from your XF68Config-4 file I bet. The i810 is a chipset, that include the video controller.
