    Networking in Debian + other questions


    Hello,

    1. I installed the Sarge distribution of Debian and am having trouble setting up networking. I cannot seem to access the internet even after I do an ifconfig. The interface eth0 exists and the "ifconfig" command displays the eth0 and l0 interface with no IP assisgned to eth0. I have a router (which I presume acts as the DHCP server for my home network). I previously had SuSe 9.1 on which worked flawlessly (networking wise).

    2. One more question is regarding accessing windows partitions under Debian. SuSe did it automatically (by having /windows..) folders. How can I achieve the same under Debian.

    3. How can I install the kernel sources for the Sarge distribution? The version is 2.4.27-1-386 (which is somewhat old), should I try to update to the 2.6 version?

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    I have windows C on dev/hd1 and D on dev/hd2.
    Linux root is on dev/hd7 and Swap on dev/hd6. I use the GRUB bootloader (installed on the MBR) to boot into Linux. Thanks.
