I'm trying to help a relative install Mandrake 10.1 on his system (I 
wish it were KRUD or Fedora), and it appears that his network driver (it 
is integrated nVidia board ethernet) is working. It appears that we have 
an outgoing DHCP request (the cable modem sees it), but either no 
response is coming back or the response is "no way, go away", I'm not 
sure which (I think the firewall software *might* be correct but I'm not 
positive). This is on comcast locally. Can anyone give me some clues on 
Mandrake setup for use with comcast? I have no problems with 
KRUD/Fedora, but this Mandrake has different layout of files, and I'm 
not succeeding.
