I have just installed Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit server edition. There are no programs installed. (10 Prob USB support).

I cannot update, etc since I cannot get online. Apt-get, aptitude, synaptic, etc don’t work since no programs installed (screen shows 0 programs installed). Tasksel, sudo, etc tried. I need to get online.

 

This is a sample of data from server guide and online research.

 

It has been suggested in this data that I add lines in /etc/network/interfaces:

 

            Auto eth0

            Iface eth0 inet dhcp

 

I seem to need to set up DHCP to get on line. Here are some ideas from server guide and online research, please fix.

 

DHCP configuration:

IP address: 192.168.1.1

            Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

            Gateway: 192.168.1.1

            Nameserver Address: 192.168.1.1

            Hostname: coffee1

            Domain name: mydomain.com

 

            Then:

                        DHCP name: coffee1

                        Domain name servers: ns1.example.com

                        Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

                        Default lease time: 600

                        Max lease time: 7200

                        Servername: coffee1.example.com

 

                                    Subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {range 192.168.1.200 192.168.1.253}

                                    Option routers 192.168.1.1

 

                                    Host clientname{

                                                Filename “/tftpboot/tftpboot.img

                                                Server-name”servername”

                                                Hardware Ethernet 01:23:45:67:89:AB

                                                Fixed address 192.168.1.90

 

            Then:

                        Option domain-name “example.com”;

                        Option domain-name-servers nsl.example.com;

                        Option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

                        Default-lease-time 600;

                        Max-lease-time 7200;

                        Server-name “servername”;

 

                        Subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

                             Range 192.168.1.200  192.168.1.253;

                              Option routers 192.168.1.1;

                        }

 

                        Host clientname {

                           Filename “/tftpboot/tftpboot.img”;

                           Server-name “servername”;

                            Next-server servername;

                           Hardware Ethernet 01:23:45:67:89:AB;

                           Fixed-address 192.168.1.90;

                           }

Clearly there are conflicting ideas. Any clarification will be appreciated .
