Re: dial-up to ethernet

Thanks again to everybody for their answers.

My /etc/network/interfaces file is:

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for 
ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
iface lo inet loopback

# The first network card - this entry was created 
during the Debian installation
# (network, broadcast and gateway are optional)
iface eth0 inet static
#	gateway

There is no following line like,

# iface eth0 inet dhcp

for me to uncomment, but I don't see any reason 
why I couldn't just write one, yes?

If I put that line in and comment out the others, 
as suggested, does the kernel rewrite the file 
with the info it acquires during bootup; is that the 
way it works?

BTW, ifup and ifdown seem to work.

Thanks again to all,


P.S:  I don't know why gateway is commented 
out above, I just noticed it.  I didn't do it.
