Connecting to Road Runner
jeesh i feel like a complete n00b, but I can't for the life of me connect to road runner. Linux recognizes my NIC (eth0), and it supports DHCP. It tries to activate it on bootup when I have my laptop connected to my cable modem and it says
Determining IP Information for eth0....[FAILED]
So I say ok, I haven't run the rrconf script yet or anything that would let linux know i'm connecting to rr. so i login, run ./rrconf and enter all of the info. then i run ./rrlogind -v and it returns without output. So then I try to activate eth0 and it says once again FAILED. I have read the couple relevant threads on linuxforums.org and googled this to hell without hitting paydirt. Dolda, you seemed pretty knoweledgable in another thread involving RR, so do you think you might give me a nudge? I am running Red Hat 9 on a Toshiba Portégé 7020CT Laptop and dmesg tells me:
Intel(R) PRO/100 Network Driver - version 2.3.18-k1
My ethernet card is a 82557/8/9 [Ethernet Pro 100]
If anyone can give me a clue I will be forever grateful!
Thank you VERY much,
