Guys/gals, I'm taking the plunge, if time allows, I'm going to install Kubuntu on a spare drive I have...

Now that should be straight forward, I hope... what I need suggestions on is PPPOE install as I have wireless service to my house, but the NIC is hardwired via cat5 to the wireless transceiver...

Later

MD

The first step is to see if your card is detected by default. If not, you'll have to tinker a bit and either hunt down a linux driver or use something like ndiswrapper. The chances are pretty good the card will be up and running from the get-go, unless you've got one from broadcom or somebody else who doesn't have great linux support for their stuff. After that you can take a peek at two packages, pppoe and pppoeconf. The first of those is the driver for pppoe connections, the second is the initial config tool used to set your connection up. I haven't used either of those so I don't know how good they are, but that looks like the way this sort of thing is usually done.

Biostar 6100-939 mainboard... has onboard NIC.

I've heard about a package from roaring penguin for PPPOE, have you heard of it?

Thanks

You're probably good to go then. If it's one of those from realtek or somebody else that you find everywhere, then you could probably make those work with a toaster if you wanted to. I haven't heard of the roaring penguin app, but it looks kind of nifty... might as well try it out.

I'm looking on BIOSTAR's site at the moment and I can't find a motherboard named "6100-939"...what exactly is the model number of the board, MD?
