My ethernet-broadband setting are not being saved when puter is shutdown. I'm using a onboard Nvidia ethernet, with external Motorola broadband modem. As root (/sbin/vasm/) i setup up my network settings using DHCP or Static. When I do a "ifconfig" eth0 is transmitting and receiving packets with no errors. My problem is when I shutdown the computer. When I turn computer on I no longer have my inet. Evidently, my inet settings are not saved. I have looked for a "save settings" tab without success. Ubuntu, Kubuntu. PclinuxOS, work just fine. I have installed VL5.8 and 5.8.6 with same problem. Any and all help would be much appreciated.
