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: exiting (due to assertion failure)
kdm: server /usr/X11R6/bin/ X cannot be executed.
kdm: Server unexpectedly dies. Server for display : 0 cannot be

Default Gateway . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
okay, and since your other box is 192.168.1.101, i think it's safe to
assume that your dhcp server is giving out addresses on the 192.168.1.0
network. how about trying to manually configure your device then, with:
# /sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.111
and then see if you can ping some ip addresses, like:
$ ping 184.108.40.206
(that's www.google.com). if that works, you just need to copy the dns
information over too.
