Re: (Newbie) Knoppix.
I have tried this. It doesn't seem to work, unfortunately. The only
alternative is getting a 25 ft. Ethernet cable and trying to run this
through the house, but as I said in an earlier posting, this problem
seems to be a Linux SiS 900 driver problem as Win 98SE works just fine.

I checked Knoppix' web site, which directed to a page with "cheat

When the system started, I used "netcartconfig" to get the system
to broadcast a DHCP something or other. Unlike the other computers
on my WAN/LAN that I have tried this Knoppix system on, my
daughter's computer could not successfully get an IP address
assigned with DHCP.
You sure it's not a hardware problem? Try assigning a static IP and
see if you can ping the other hosts in your network. Maybe its just
a physical connection issue..
