need Network install HELP for Mandrake 9.2! with network.img
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 ___
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 ___ 188.8.131.52
IP of DNS ________ ??? [what should I put here?]
IP of default gateway ________ ???? [what should I put here?]
Please help!!!! Thanks!

if you choose the DHCP option, i would expect the settings you said to work. However, DHCP relies on your ISP providing a dynamic IP address service.
If you have dynamic IP, then choose DHCP. If not, call your ISP for the static IP options.
