During the install Mandrake 10 asked if I wanted to enable DHCP. I answered yes and it just worked.
If I were you, I'd answer yes too.
Im quite new to linux, and want to know how I would go about sharing an internet connection.
My father has Windows Xp home ediiton on his pc in the living room, this is connected to a hub which has a dsl router connected to it. I want to share this internet connection with a linux box in my room over the 10/100 cable. My pc is currently connected to the hub aswell via a 10/100. I have linux mandrake 10.1 ready to roll, and am just wanting to know how to go about the networking. File/Printer sharing is not an issue as I have a printer set up already in my room, just the net connection
I'm fairly new to this linux thing..so please be gentle
Thanks in advance
