    Setting up a connection


    I dual boot with XP/openSUSE 10.2, The Internet works fine with XP, however I have no idea how to set up a connection on SUSE, my computer skills are..... limited to say the least. I have a Belkin ADSL router. Thanks for any advice or tutorials you could tell/link me too
    Regards Ian

    This shouldn't be a big deal. Use yast and

    1) Configure your network card. If your router uses dhcp just use dhcp for your card. Otherwise use a static IP address of your network.
    2) Add your router's IP address as the default gateway in the NW card config
    3) If your router has a nameserver just add his IP address as the nameserver address in the NW card config. Otherwise use a nameserver provided by your ISP

    That's it
