The big difference between RH9 and here is that a mere mortal typed in
some info. There's almost certainly a typo in what you entered. There
always is when I hit something like this.

What is the IP and netmask of eth0? Can you ping eth0?

What is the IP of DNS?

And I told you a huge lie - the default route's *destination* is, not the gateway. The gateway of the default route should *not*
be What I said was exactly backwards. If the gateways are all
0,0,0,0, you don't have a default route. You'll need one to get to the
Internet, but not to DNS.
