newbie HELP please, no web, or ftp (but i do have an IP)????
Just recently installed Redhat 9.0 and i'm using x windows (GNOME). Install went great had a little problem with video card compatibility but I worked that out.
I'm running my linux box and a windows pc, back and forth on a kvm switch....so I really can't copy and paste my output of "cat /proc/pci", etc. but here are the things I can tell you. I do have an IP address of 192.168.1.102 . I also noticed when I'm up at school with the linux machine, I can access all the files and printers available on the network. The Ethernet Controller is listed as : Intel Corp. 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100] (rev 8). What I can't seem to get to work in linux is any web browser (Mozilla), or any p2p, ftp, http, or any messaging programs such as GAIM. Oh yeah, not sure if this helps any troubleshooting, but I have the ethernet card connected into a Linksys Wireless-g router, instead of directly into my DSL modem.
I figure i'm just missing a key element here or something. ANY help would be great, I'd love to get this machine up and running fully.
