Hello Linux User, I am in the process setting up Slackware 1.2.0 on my PC (486DX50).
I have a problem with setting up the Networking packages. I want to set-up my Linux
so that I can get access to the Sun Host that is on our network. Currently we are
using Novell 3.11 and Intel package driver. Do I need any special Driver to for
Intel Ethernet Card.
And when prompt to enter the network information, such as IP,
netmask, network, broadcast, etc. Do I enter the current network setting that was
set-upped by my Sys. Adm OR the new network that I am trying to set-up. For example:
My current IP address is 184.108.40.206 for netmask do I enter 255.255.255.0 (which is
the new set-up) or do I use the current set-up that was set-up by my Sys. Adm (which
is 255.255.0.0). Since we use IPX, we don't have a Gateway, so do I enter the address
of our name server in the space of Gateway insted.
And what is a Network Address.
Any insights is greatly appreciated. You can my your reply or post it, I really
appreciated if you would mail it, since this newsgroup is so large. Thank You
