    connetcting to internet


    I am having problems connecting my new devil-linux router box to the internet. when i run the dhcleint or the newtork start thing i get the following error message:
    Code:
    sit0: unknown hardware address type 776
    can't create /var/state/dhcp/dhclient.leases: No such file or directory
    execve (/etc/dhclient-script, ...): No such file or directory

    right now i think it could be because the network card isnt working. is there any way to test if it is. when i ping the loopback it works normal but i dont know if that is eth1 (the one connected to my LAN) or eth0 (the one im trying to hook up to the internet)
