I just downloaded VL 5.8 LIVE & booted up. Very nice.
My network doesn't use DHCP server & so I need to define IP, netmask etc. Doesn't work. I couldn't find how to in the menu system, so opened a terminal, logged in as root & ran netconfig. It 'saved' the definitions, but when I ran /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart it just goes back to the dhcp configuration.
Anyone got any ideas???
