I am trying to setup static ip addresses running either the etch or the
lenny gnome iso's - the problem is the same for both.
If, at the boot prompt, I enter
vmlinuz install netcfg/disable_dhcp=true
I get the message, "Could not find the kernel image: vmlinuz"
On the other hand, if I simply hit enter at the boot prompt the system
boots up very nicely to the gnome desk top. Then
Applications/Debian/Apps/System/Network Administration opens a window
asking for root's password. Neither sudo bash or bash alone work. If
I go to a console window Ctl/Del/F1 and enter sudo bash I immediately
get the root prompt.
I confess that I do not fully understand sudo. I am the only one
allowed to do any administrative functions on the computers of my home
network so until now I have just become root for this work and a normal
user for everything else.
