NEWBIE: Installation and the Network
This is my first post to the list so please be gently with me.
First the facts. I'm trying to install on a Performa 6360 with 32 MB
RAM and a Farallon ethernet card attached to the single PCI slot.
Those are the basics.
Second, I'm installing, the base installation from a local HFS
partition with the rest if from either an http or an ftp source. The
base install seems to go fine. Where the problem arrives is when it
comes time to reach out and grab the rest of the files. I can't seem
to get my network up. I tried using DHCP but no luck. I've also tried
using a fixed address. No good.
The funny this is I actually have installed 3 times now and the first
time it worked. I had it all working without any GUI. Then I got
greedy and went for for a GUI and it would hang once X was up. I was
never able to get logged in through a X login.
I didn't find how to set the init mode until after I did my second
installation. However by that time it was too late and I could not
get the network up. I have no idea if I did something different the
first time... well, I know the first time DHCP worked. However, since
Just for the record... ethernet and TCP/IP work under the Mac OS so
it's not hardware failure and I'm installing from the same files as
the first installation.
I've searched the recent archives and have not found the solution to
my problem. Any help would be appreciated and I'm sure there will be
more questions once I've get this one solved.
Thanks in advance,
