What is cnet? I don't have this tool in my /var/lib/dpkg/available. I
have running Woody. This cnet is not a part of Woody. Is it a part of
Potato (Debian2.2) or Sid?
However. It sounds like a missconfigured cnet. read man cnet to find
out how to configure.

After my first Debian installation, it was the Potato system, i had the
same trouble. Till i heared about the file /etc/resolv.conf. This file
is needed to get access to your ISP. And i had to create this file,
cause it was there after installing Debian. For example take a look at

Don't know what happens. Also a problem, cause your cnet is busy with his
bad configuration? Or is your hard disk going to nirvana?
Nothing is impossible!
You only need to know the way.
