Setup ethernet connection
Dear Debian Users,
I need to setup an ethernet connection at work. I always use
debian at home, but never use it over a large LAN.
Could someone please tell me how to setup an enthernet connection?
Is there a tool like Redhat's netcfg to do this? Or do I have to edit the
file /etc/init.d/network by hand?
Also, could you please tell me what packages I will need in order
to use the ethernet connection?
Thanks very much. This is my first job using linux, I really want
to impress my boss.
