During the installation, I get up to the part where I have to enter an FTP
site or IP. I tried using ftp.nodomainname.net, but then it says that it
cannot resolve the FTP name. Isn't DHCP supposed to automatically supply
DNS? Then, I tried putting the IP in directly, but then it says that it
cannot connect to an FTP server.
I am using a cable modem, and I chose DHCP for the boot protocol screen.
Looking at the messages terminal using alt-arrow, I can see that the
network card successfully got an IP address from the DHCP server. Does
anybody know what might be the problem?
Oh, one thing I noticed was that the IP I get from DHCP for Linux is
always the same IP. This does not usually happen when I get an IP from
DHCP for my MacOS. Could this be part of the problem?
Thanks for any help,
