Re: Newbie bull brings own china shop.

OK Sean, the output of "# /sbin/ifconfig eth0" was "eth0 Media Link Off". The result of "$ ping" was "Network is unreachable" :-(

okay, well then just be extra clear what you're talking about..

The output of "# tail /var/log/messages" was as follows:

sda: status=1, message=00, host=0, driver=08
sda: I/O error: dev 08:00, sector0
unable to read partition table

that looks like unrelated errors...

The output of "# tail /var/log/syslog" was as follows:

named[170]: exiting (due to assertion failure)
lpd[195]: restarted
kdm[229]: server /usr/X11R6/bin/ X cannot be executed.
kdm[219]: Server unexpectedly dies. Server for display : 0 cannot be started, session disabled.

again, unrelated...

okay, and since your other box is, i think it's safe to
assume that your dhcp server is giving out addresses on the
network.  how about trying to manually configure your device then, with:

# /sbin/ifconfig eth0

and then see if you can ping some ip addresses, like:

$ ping

(that's www.google.com).  if that works, you just need to copy the dns
information over too.
