Install Linux on P4 system

There was a thread previously stating a command to type at the beginning of the installation.

#echo 'arch_compat: i?86: i386'>./rpmst or something like that.

Then needed to add the line to the "rpmst" file when the installation was done.

Everything worked fine for the install. But you rebooted after editing the file you see the network cards as loading correctly and if you ifconfiged your network cards they showed up ok. But if you tried to ping it or out nothing would happen. Also you couldn't set up DHCP or DNS.

Any idea how to correct this?

Maybe your networking daemons aren't worknign properly. I'd run linuxconf and check to see if all of the services are running properly.
