I got a problem…I’m using a computer at my friend’s house which is connected to a lan (kinda). He has 2 computers (Win98) networked through a hub which is in turn connected to a cable modem on to Hinet. I do NOT have access to any of his computers…
I built a box here and hooked it up to his system but the only way I can get on line is to run either QNXRTP or (gag!) Win XP with RASPPOE.
I’ve been unable to connect using any flavor of Linux, Solaris or even Caldera’s Openunix 8.
To make a long story short, I just downloaded Mandrake 8.2 and I REALLY want to run it but I can’t figure out how to configure the network/ADSL settings. I don’t need to be able to access his network, just be able to get online.
