wouldnt install I then tried to install iproute from another rpm but it

gathering dust but the network install is even more confusing :-( It
has an option for both a Lan connection and a cble connection, Using the
cable option (maybe too obvious) I select Automatic IP it then asks me

When I google I find very few hits for NTL and Mandrake but one guy said
to copy settings from 9.2 to 10 but of course that is now deleted
Has anyone set up a cable modem on Mandrake 10 and if so any pointers or
is there a manual way of setting the internet connection up to avoid the
