Questions on GRUB and ethernet modems
I have 3 questions to ask about GRUB and adsl ethernet modems. Here goes:
1) Do you know the steps to reinstall GRUB, in case the OS bootup screen disappears. (e.g when windows is reinstalled) ?
2) I want to buy an ethernet adsl modem. What models are compatible with linux ?
3) Presently I have a LAN connecting 2 pcs at home. The IP addresses and subnet masks are manually configured. Hence, if i install the adsl ethernet modem on 1 pc, do I have to change the NIC to use DHCP or can i continue using my manual IP and subnet settings?
My friend,whose linux connection works, told me to keep the manual settings while a linux book I read said most adsl connections use DHCP.
Please reply quickly if you can. Thanks!
Few more questions about grub and ethernet adsl
Hi Dolda2000 and bpark,
Thanks for the advice you have given. I have a few points to confirm though.
Is 'grub install /dev/hda' a command to be typed on the command line?
What is the grub stage 2 file and where to I get it?
Lastly,what does NAT mean and is the router the only device to have NAT? Do ethernet adsl modems have NAT too?
