Here's my situation. I have a dual boot pc using windows xp pro and fedora core 3. I really don't know much at all about linux so please if you can help talk like i'm a 3 year old. Anyway, I have no problem connecting to the internet with windows xp. There are 2 computers connected to a router that connects to a bellsouth dsl modem. Windows Xp connects via dhcp.

The problem: I can't connect to the internet with linux. I've heard about roaring penguin ppp0e but don't know if that's right in my situation.

I don't know what eth0 is but it seems to be set up...

Please Help!!

eth0 is your ethernet card. Just set the gateway to the IP of the router, and it should work

What distribution are you using?
