I am having similar problems. I have 2 machines, a linux
machine(192.168.1.1) and a win95 one (192.168.1.2). I have installed
the network card correctly but now my lo interface refuses to start at
boot although the xwindows network configuration tool says that it is
active and that it is started at boot, ifconfig shows only my ethernet
adapter. I could start it manually but then I disabled gated and it
doesn't seem to work at all now. Any tips? Is gated really neccessary
for a home network?
