: what does /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 look like?
where 130.15 is my school domain, YYY is the subnet of my building, and
XXX is my machine. The IP are statically assigned.
actually, I just realized that, the network actually works for about 2 minutes
upon linux's bootup, then it only works within the domain. That is, I can
access everywhere in the internet by both IP/name for the first 2 minutes
after the machine boots in linux. After that period, I'll have "su" as
root and deactivate/reactivate eth0 in "netcfg". VERY weird.
as I mentioned, my "netcfg" configuration is idential to my friend's computer
which is on Redhat 4.2. The only is the "XXX" value above.
