I have just gotten set up with TELUS DSL in BC Canada. My W98 and WinNT work
perfect using DHCP, although in the instructions they ask you to remove the
domain name and DNS server and WINS entries from your TCP/IP setup.
But when I boot under Linux it hangs on eth0 every time, then times out.
I discovered what is causing the problem: "/etc/sysconfig/network" contains
the line "HOSTNAME=blade.mville.com", (everything works fine if I just
delete this one line). But if I delete the line then my host name shows up
as a bunch of gibberish at the Linux command line, ie: "allng675yaud#".
So I put in "HOSTNAME=blade", but then it won't bring up eth0!
I've tried both pump and dhcp daemon. Both give the same problem. How can I
keep a host name but also bring up eth0 with the DSL DHCP?
