Well I finally made it.... HAve Linux Slackware 3.0 up and running with
worldnet... Still have some lose ends to wrap up, but PPP dial up connects
and I can do NNTP news and outgoing email.. Still can get get SMTP to get
the incomming email from AT&T.. Here is were to get the info on how to do
select Connectivity then Linux... A word of advice, follow his instructions
to the 'T'.
I spent many many hours becaust I left out a " in one line... Also I had
to re-config Linux network to use loopback and no gateway.. When I had it
setup to use my network card as 10.0.0.1 and local loopback as 127.0.0.0 it
WOULD not work..
If you guys use this info to get things up. I'd sure like to heare about
