[QUOTE]\nOkay, just for fun <g> I put Red Hat 9 on an old PC sitting around...So far\nso good. The installer put all the pieces in the right places. It is booting\nto Gnome. I intend to play with the Open Office and Mozilla and such.\n"Support your local learning curve", all that. I do feel that it boots and\nruns slower than Windows 98SE which was on the machine previously, but that\nof course is subjective (400MHz CPU/128 megs RAM/4Gig HD).\n\n\nBut I can't get Mozilla to the Internet.\n\nI imagine it's a simple network configuration issue. But I don't know where\nto start. Since it is booting direct into Gnome, can someone give me some\ntips on resolving this using the tools available in the Gnome interface?[/QUOTE]\n\nOkay - as you can see if you check my headers (or even my login name <g>)\nI'm online on my Linux box.\n\nThe installation of Red Hat recognised and configured my network card but\nfor some reason it wasn't getting DNS resolution. That idea came to me in\nthe wee hours of the AM -\- that's often when I'm at my best ;o)\n\nSo this evening I typed in an IP address for a local ISP, and voila! there\nI went. So, suspicions confirmed, I deleted the existing network card\nconfiguration, set it up again, and rebooted. And here I am! For all of\nthose wonderful people who have *plonked* me, I will refrain from using\nthis box to post to the group (unless Windows is down <g>) so they won't\nhave to killfile me again. Now see, wasn't that nice of me?
