I am new to Linux and I was wondering if you could help me out with a problem. I installed 8.0 on a duel boot computer. As the Linux o/s is booting up I am receiving the following error "Determining IP information eth0 failed: no link present-- check cable". I know the cable is OK because it works fine on W2K O/S. I am using DHCP for my IP address settings but when I look under my system settings and click on network it states status as inactive. Any clues on what I have to do? I would like to access the internet and e-mail but I can't because of this problem. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
