cable internet not starting on centos 4.2

Post by aolex » 2006/03/01 11:36:24

hello there!

i recently installed centos 4.2 and I would like to say congratulations for the operating system, it's really fast and reliable. however, I have a big problem: the internet is not working. I have a cable internet connection that only requires me to set the right computer name and the computer get its information (ip etc. ...) from the ISP. in centos, this is not working, however. I have set the network up with DHCP, set my computer name but the internet refuses to work. after starting eth0 it says:

failed to aqquire IP address :(

is there someone who can help me with this?
