    New to linux

    Thx for your time.

    I just purchased suse 8.1 or 8.2..(I know about linuxiso.com)

    I got everything setup and now im trying to get my internet up
    I have a cable modem and i cant any connection online

    I configured it with dhcp and non dhcp still nothing

    Is there a config file somewhere i have to edit.

    PLEASE BARE WITH ME

    can you show me where to go to edit it.

    THX

    Please no flames we all started off slow too.

    soryy i dont have the answer to the gquestion but i was wondering where you purchased your copy of suse. i am also new to this world and am thinking about trying a linux distro. any ways thanks for your help. and also aslong asd you steer away from the hacking questions (i learned the hard way) you will not get flammed. also if you have IRC go to irc.bytekill.net #bytekill it is full of linux fans and everyone there is really helpful.

    im not too familiar with cable but maybe you forgot to configure your network for your ISPs DNS servers.

    I guess it all depends on your ISP. How do you set up a windows box to get to the net? If you can tell me that, I can step you through doing it in Linux.

    Oh yeah, I would check to make sure that the box sees your NIC. I suppose the absolute easiest way to do that would be to ping loopback.
