error: received bad configure nak/rej 12 00 00 00

Dear,

I'm a newcomer to linux and tried to connect to the internet

After setting up my PPP without the PAP authentication I connected
with ifup ppp0 (redhat 5.2 distribution).

I got connected but then I received a message in the /var/log/messages file
that said

received bad configure-nak/rej 12 00 00 00 ??

The ?? is another number I can't recall.

I couldn't connect with netscap to the internet. Ping didn't do it either

Anybody an idea how to solve this

Regards

John Vasago.

 
 
 

1. SOLVED : LILO gives me L 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

To everyone who mailed me with there suggestions and for my answers here
it is.

I finally did some checking and found that my BIOS was pretty new and
that where
it specifies the hard drives there is a column called Mode. This goes
from 1 to
4 and is as follows.

Mode 1 = Normal - all cylinders, heads and sectors stay the same.
Mode 2 = Large - it doubles your heads and halves your cylinders.
Thereby getting
                 less cylinders. However for my drive it was still over
1024.
Mode 3 = LBA - it quadruples your heads and divides your cylinders by 4.
Thereby
               getting even less cylinders than Large mode. This left me
with
               cylinders =  621, heads = 64, sectors = 63 which use to
be
                         = 2484,       = 16,           63.
Mode 4 = Auto - Don't know what this is for, but it did not work for me.

This approach probably won't work for most people with older BIOS's.
Unfortuanately I could not get to a linux software solution after many
hours
of testing different setups and posts. Hope this helps someone.
