    Me too...


    I just tried out Wolvix, which is based on Slax, and I love it. The only problem, though, is that I cannot connect to the internet. I usually use interface eth0 and with knoppix and dsl it is autoconfigged at boot time (using dhcp) so I can surf right away. We have a dynamic IP so I don't think I can just do the ifconfig thing manually, and netconfig don't work.

    ARGH. Help please.

    try
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 up
    dhcpcd eth0
    then to see if you can resolve hosts

    ping -c 3 www.google.com

    if you get anything back but unknown host, you are good...to you have a firewall running?
