    Setting up LAN without 0-key


    I found an old system, so I decided to mess around with linux a bit.

    Problem is, the 0 key doesn't work. As the Alt+key for 0 is - 0, I'm having a bit of a problem. I realised it'd be hard to setup the network when slackware first installed and asked for the info.

    So, question is, is there any way to get around this?

    (And to setup the LAN from the command line, is it dhcpcd that I should use? If I wanted a static IP, should I use something else?)

    if you can get to a graphical interface, and open up a terminal, there is hope

    Open up a website, or ANYTHING you can, be it a file from another computer.

    use the mouse to copy and paste the digit '0' wherever you need it

    Woo! That worked ^_^;

    Or, well, the zero did. I'm still having trouble with setting up the LAN >_<

    Know if a good tutorial =/? (Or the commands I should Man? I tried dhcpcd, but that's about it, and it didn't work ... >_> ...)
