Fedora 2 - Internet Connection Difficulty
Recently I found a laptop in a garbage can. I wanted to learn redhat, so I figured if I could get it running, it would become a redhat machine.
So now I have my Gateway Solo 5300
and its running fedora 2 (I have a book on it so I chose taht so i can learn from my book. I will get to three shortly), and I plug in my ethernet connection and it doesn't even recognize it (atleast no notification)
I've tested the eithernet cable, my connection is fine, and I've played in the internet configuration wizard for a little bit but I never figured it out. I was using the KDE setting.
