Hello, you didn't tell us which version of Debian you are currently
using, neither the kernel you're on. If you are using a woody install
cd, it is better to go with a : linux24 kernel install (from the boot)
and if using a sarge/sid/jigdo CD, you can type instead : linux26 if
you feel ready for it.
Now, your interface problem, here's a sample of my interfaces file :
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
# The loopback interface
auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
This should get you going. Make sure you have an alias for eth0 in
/etc/modutils/aliases if using woody. If using sarge, discover should
be installed to take care of this.
Hope that helps,
