I have FC2 (Fedora Core 2) on my gateway machine, and all is fine. I
want to update it to FC4. As an intermediate step I put FC4 on an older
box. At first I had video problems, but found a not quite as old video
card so I can see what I'm doing.
I set up eth0 with no IP, ppp0 for Xdsl (pppoe), and eth1 with a private
LAN address. When the system boots, eth0,and eth1 both come up ok, but
ppp0 always fails. After Fedora gets to the desktop, I can activate
ppp0 using the Network Device Control tool. Can someone tell me where
to look so that ppp0 doesn't fail on boot up?
Once I'm sure I can get FC4 running ok, I can put it on the original
gateway, but if I start and don't get everything working, my wife won't
be able to browse or get e-mail until I do. That's not good.
