No need to know any IP addresses as Eircom can be done on DHCP. If
installing Mandrake 10 with the ethernet connection and ticking DHCP at
the relevant network part of the install you should be straight in.
Word of caution though. I was using Gentoo with the 2.4 kernel and I had
to disable IPV6 in the kernel to prevent a painfully slow 'Resolving
Host' issue. No problem under Gentoo with a 2.6 kernel *BUT *I did
install Mandrake 10 (to have a look at the distro) using 2.6 kernel and
suffered the same slow 'Resolving Host' issue but couldn't find anywhere
within the kernel compile to disable IPV6.
