Re: dhcp/windoze question
yeah. if this is a normal ethernet network you should have no problems.
HOWEVER, if the DHCP server is a win32 box you may quite likely have
DNS problems, as at least NT4 seems to add a line feed character or
something at the end of the nameservers it reports, so check /etc/resolv.conf
if your on such a network, you can modify the DHCP scripts to ignore
resolv.conf and you can configure it manually if this is the case.
How do i know which computer is the DHCP server? They are all just
win98 boxen w/ the tcp/ip set to obtain IP address automatically. Or do
i never need to know the ip address of the dhcp server (i thought that
the deb installation asks you for that if you choose DHCP).
if this is not a normal ethernet network(e.g. this is a computer with
DSL over PPPoE or soemthing) then additional configuration may be
Yeah, it's just normal ethernet (their is a DSL modem, but that will be
shared by a windoze box.
