Re: Newbie bull brings own china shop.
Knoppix got finished earlier than expected. I first tried it on
another machine on my WAN/LAN to see if the CD would work with another
configuration. This went off without a hitch, though it is necessary to
prompt Knoppix to search for a dhcp assignment of an IP address by using
"netcartconfig". I gave the command "knoppix noapic" at the boot prompt
on my daughter's computer, and then used the "netcartconfig" tool to get
an IP address assigned by DHCP. Unfortunately, this didn't work.
I added the lines that you suggested to /etc/interfaces (there were no
contents to start with in the file). I then rebooted. There was no
output to the command "# /sbin/ifconfig" or "ifconfig". However, a new
line prompt did appear.

i've never seen that error out of ifconfig before, and can't even find
it in the source code for the program. okay, while you're waiting for
the knoppix cd, how about you try this:
- in /etc/interfaces, take out all lines mentioning eth0, then put
the following in:
iface eth0 inet static
and then just reboot the whole machine, and see if you get an address
out of ifconfig when you get back to a prompt.
also, i just have to ask--have you tried this with another cable, and
have you tried this in one of the ports on the hub that you know to work?
