    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    I really have to say I was suprised how easy getting on the net over ethernet/router was. It's easier than in windows!

    I didn't configure anything, just pressed connect in the net applet!! I know how dchp works, and it's great but I hadn't even to tell the system which adapter to use or protocols. Excellent. Wvwn went as far as changing the hostname to the generated name on the router.

    The only trouble I had was with azureus, and as it turns out that was to do with port forwarding on the router. Sweet. More impressed with linux now than I have been in my whole 2 years using it.

    Congrats! I know how it feels, at the beginning we just had an ISDN winmodem and could'nt get my linuxbox on the net... But then we got a ISDN card from our neighbur, and after a lot of tumbling I got it on the net (but I had to disconnect by pulling the cable since "disconnect" or something similar was greyed out in fedora)... I remember when we got ADSL, I thought it would be like hell to configure it when I realised that I did'nt have to configure anything, mandriva (And every other linux I tried since then) did it automaticly! As you said, easier than windows even.

    Damm youre lucky to get a 2Mbit connection, im still stuck on 256Kbit until the local phone company decides to extend the range of ADSL well over the 18000ft limit.

    But, anything is better than dialup
