So I apologize for not knowing crapola, but I am trying to setup a Server & from my needs puppy seems to be the best fit (will be booting from & saving back to a Compact Flash.

I have a Abit NF7-S2 motherboard with an IC Plus 10/100 on board nic. I Have been through several drivers trying random stuff that was "close" but nothing got it. The Only IC Plus I can find is for a newer Gigabit controller. Any help would be appreciated.


Edit: Also I had ubuntu installed previously on a hard drive & it auto installed the nic with no issues so I imagine that drivers should maybe exist somewhere.


Edit 2: Nevermind this isnt a hardware issue. While reading about puppy elsewhere there was an error described & so I tested with IP & it works fine with IP Adress.. Now if I can jsut figure out how to do whats described here http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20090824#feature

Dude, you could have at least explained or quoted what was described there, so we didn't have to read the whole page to find what you're talking about Smile

I think you just need to delete /etc/resolv.conf, then rerun the network wizard.

What version of Puppy are you using? Because we were hoping this bug was fixed in 4.3.1.

Ok, I'm guessing your problem is that you can't actually find /etc/resolv.conf. Is that right?
When you open Rox (the filer) e.g. by clicking the house icon on the pinboard, by default it opens your home folder (which is sometimes represented as $HOME or ~). Puppy is a single-user system that always runs as user "root", so your home folder is /root. To get to /etc you need to click the up button, which takes you to the top of the filesystem, then click /etc. Or if you want to learn the fast way to navigate, open the mini-buffer by pressing / then press backspace then e then enter.

actually my problem was a complete lack of linux command knoledge..

I Got it figured out about an hour ago so its online, So now I have other things I am trying to figure out. But thats meant for another thread if I cant get it..

But yea when I finally found out the rm command deleted the file I did what you said & it worked fine. Also I didn't know I could just browse files as you just posted so that should make things a little easier on me.
