Thank you, sir!
For reference when I get around to installing, and for the
peace-of-mind of a newbie, what do you mean by "get your IP address
through DHCP"? Is that a command, like this:
It sort of sounds like you already had a running system, with the DHCP
package already installed/configured. If my CDs don't work, and I will
have try the Sarge netinst CD that I burned. You wouldn't happen to
know anything about that, would you? (It sure would be nice to have
that work well if the stable CDs can't get it done!)
