I'd like to thank you for your discussions on this
list. You helped me solve a problem by inference. I'm attempting to
introduce myself to Linux by learning on Knoppix. I have Knoppix 3.3, and
for 4 months I was trying to hook up to the internet ( I have Verizon DSL), and
could not figure it out. Well, someone on this list mentioned that Verizon
uses the Computers name to verify the account, and it hit me!! When you
boot up Knoppix, the computer's name is [Knoppix]. So I checked out the
name of my Windows ME machine (EDMONDJK), and on Knoppix I did
:[Knoppix]:hostname EDMONDJK, and after that used PPPoE and it
worked!!!!! Now I can get on the internet with my Knoppix. After all
that time, that's all it took.
Anyway, if any of you are interested, I came across
a convention that is coming to Philadelphia:
N-TEN The 2004 Nonprofit Technology
