Who says a Celeron 466 is obsolete ?

Just two days back I got my Celeron 466 motherboard problem solved after getting it repaired from Mumbai through a computer hardware geek in Ponda, Gireesh Nabhar, 9822480710. Damages to my pocket was Rs. 1.2 K.

The windooze partition is retrived and the Redhat 8 Linux partition too is working fine.

Last night I got a D-Link network interface card (rs 400/-) installed through Gireesh, it was working fine on Windooze. Later on I tried configuring BSNL Broadband on Redhat 8.0. While booting itself it configured the network card and asked whether I want to set up networking and asked the IP address of the machine, netmask, Primary DNS and lo.. , after booting when I clicked on Mozilla, it went perfectly to google.com !!

Look how easy was the configuration of Broadband on Redhat 8. Earlier I had a tough time configuring my Suse 10 for boradband.

Thanks to Edgar, Diabolic Preacher and Vidhyadhar Gadgil of Ilug-Goa for their postings and help!!
