Debian 2.1 install help!
I just installed Debian 2.1 on a DX2 100 MHz labtop. I am encountering two
problems after the installation, and would appreciate your help. The
first one, I first used a 3Com ethernet/modem combo card to do ftp
install, but since I do not have a permanant IP, I am actually using the
modem. However, I was unable to make the switch, or don't know how. In
any case, now if I use pon, it will dial the #, and after it connects,
the ethernet card will intervene to look for IP address. Is there a way
to terminate ethernet card? Secondly, my X server crashes when I
startx. I used xf86config, and thought everything should be fine, but
just can't seem to get X to work. Is there a way to troubleshoot this
problem? The error message is several pages, and basically it says it
cannot find a mode. Is it possible to log the error message? Thanks!
