    Is the Cat 5 cable connected? is the machine turned on ?
    Why not try Google or linuxquestions.org they might have a better format in helping you with this problem.
    As a warning for future postings on this forum , Id suggest giving more detail on the specific problem your having . also include what courses of action you have tried in solving this problem , that way your post dosent piss off the moderators.
    Good luck
    the only question in life is , Why?

      The config file you're looking for is: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0. Read the ifcfg man page.

        I'm inclined to agree. This really isnt a Linux tech support forum. While, we can answer a lot of linux questions, there are forums out there that deal specificaly with helping people solve your problems. Also, we would need at lot more information other than 'I built the box and now I cant get on the internet'. With that statement alone, I can think of several dozen different things it might be. Maybe its not cabled right, maybe the network settings arent correct, and on and on.

        I return whatever i wish . Its called FREEDOWM OF RANDOMNESS IN A HECK . CLUSTERED DEFEATED CORn FORUM . Welcome to me

          without knowing what you have done. I'd suggest:
          you need to know if your NIC is active (ping). try #man netconfig
          and see if that answers any questions.
          other wise start google-ing the linux forums. I've heard of other problems like this with mandrake.
          hope that helps ;)
          The only stupid question is the one that you dont ask.
          Or the one that ends up in dev/null.

            Or you could try -

            Ifconfig eth0 up
            dhclient
            dhcpd
            ifconfig eth0 inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxxx (your router address) netmask xxx.xxx.xxx

            If your not connected through a router - adsl-setup

            If your using dial up - use the default program that mandrake comes with for dial up connections... the gui one (sorry cant remember the name at the moment)

            As well with all the other responses you got on here, read, read, read my friend... The fun never stops.
            When you draw first blood you can't stop this fight
            For my own piece of mind - I'm going to
            Tear your fucking eyes out
            Rip your fucking flesh off
            Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
            Fuck you and your progress
            Watch me fucking regress
            You were meant to take the fall - now you're nothing
            Payback's a bitch motherfucker!

              ...and if for some reason, the above suggestions do not help you, then you can try to consult with someone in person at your local linux user group. Many cities now have these, and also have installfest where you can bring your computer to them for help with getting your hardware supported.

              Local LUG are good as a resource and social network for pooling and sharing information. They can help you more advanced things like building, optimizing and patching kernels with extra security features, describe tools to aide in intrusion detection, and cover various languages applications and services you may find helpful. (I have been involved with several of these by organizing installfests, giving presentations and answering questions on lists. Many members [are] very skilled people who are willing to give away free time to help others.)

              Linux user groups are really ideal forums for resolving this very issue you post if all of the above suggestions do not provide you with results.
