Nope, that's not it unless their is another part of it that comes up
almost half screen with a little wizard guy with a magic wand that
opines as to how he's gonna help stupid and drooling you to set up a
network, PPPoE, Serial or Blue Tooth internet configuration. Maybe if I
just delete eth0 it'll show up? I've tried every other darn thing, and
my $%$^ #^ static connection to my DSL modem set to passthrough mode has
died. So, I'm using DHCP like a whipped runt puppy. 

Question in my head here... do I need to set up a route from my machine
to the dsl modem which has the address 192.168.1.254 ???
I have the static IP set on this #%^#&! machine along with the DNS
server to #$%^&* BellSouth, the $^(%# $%^& gateway which is on the other
end of the DSL modem that I have to get to. So, I think I need a static
route to the #%*#%$ modem. I used to have to do that with serial $&$*$^
modems as well. Something has to give here, and I believe it must be my
understanding, which could certainly bear ! #$%^&* broadening.

It's also been suggested to put the DSL modem into bridge mode. I
literally have no clue about that, but I see that the #%&*% DSL modem
can be set to that #$&*$#&!! mode. If anyone has a clue and need the IP
#$%^# I will be more than #%^#^ happy to post it all &$#!$&^* here.
