I cannot get Morphix to work. Morphix is a live CD which is easy to change. It is based off of Knoppix/Debian

I am installed in Virtual PC 7 on an iBook G4 connected to a DHCP network.

DHCP does not work. Ping gets a:

connect: Network is unreachable

The graphical installer on lightgui both .5-pre4 and .4 will not save static setting. After clicking apply the network still does not work. If it is closed it later shows up as DHCP again. I edited /etc/network/interfaces to:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

It now tries to ping but fails.

I also tried deleting the broadcast and gateway lines, same result.

Forcing DHCP:

iface eth0 inet dhcp

Produces the same result.
