need Network install HELP for Mandrake 9.2! using network.img w/ cable modem


need Network install HELP for Mandrake 9.2! using network.img w/ cable modem

I am trying to install mandrake 9.2, by booting with a floppy written with network.img using rawrite. My goal is to do the network install. I can't even get to where I can choose an FTP server.

It boots, then I choose the FTP INSTALL installation method

It then says, "choose the desired IP attribution (static, DHCP, ADSL)"

STATIC gives these options:
=====
IP of this machine ___
IP of DNS ___
IP of default gateway ___
netmask ___

DHCP gives these options:
====
host name ___
domain name ___



___ is where I have to fill something out... I have tried EVERYTHING, and it just times out, every time.

What should I input to make this work? I have tried every combination of anything logical.

Here is what I think should work (if I choose DHCP):
host name: mandrakebx
domain name: atl.client2.attbi.com

Is this right?


Should I choose STATIC? I am using cable modem, plugged directly into the computer. If I choose static I put in this:

IP ___ 66.56.69.165
IP of DNS ________ ??? [what should I put here?]
IP of default gateway ________ ???? [what should I put here?]
netmask _____

Please help!!!! Thanks!

Is the NIC / PC light coming on?

Can you try dhcp and leave the options blank?

Be sure you reset the power on the cable modem before you boot up the system..

Lights are on.

No, it doesn't let me leave it blank.

You can try static, you will need the dns and gateway from your isp. your problem will probably be the ip address. Most ISP's do not give static ip's. Maybe they will give you a temp one to use if you ask.
