    problem in fedora core 4


    Haiii alll,
    Initially i was using redhat and now i had switched over to fedora core 4. I dont understand why netconfig command to configure network is not working, but ifconfig command is working well. And now i am using setup command to configure the network.
    And also can u please help me how to make host name and domain name permanent.
    I think the commands in redhat and fedora are some what different.

    You can do all of that with the network configuration utility which you likely have used in RH. From FC 1 back, the command is:
    Code:
    redhat-config-network
    In FC 2 forward, it's:
    Code:
    system-config-network

    Use the tool suggested above - 'system-config-network' - it sets the networking up reasonably well. It writes the configuration for the network into the file /etc/sysconfig/network and the directory /etc/sysconfig/networking. Personally, I've always found it easier to use this tool.
