I just installed YDL Linux on my PowerBook (wallstreet) after figuring out
You can't run under OS9 and reinstalling OS 8.5.1 everything is going fine.
The only problem I am having is getting connected to the internet. I have
found the where to config (I think?) I found in Gnome and KDE But when it
tries to connect no Luck. I use Earthlink as my ISP. Any help would be
accepted. Thank you in advance.
