After prior posts, I decided to install sms again. Here are my observations and issues:

1. Installer works pretty well. I have two drives in my server and sms wants to make a partion on hda5 and hdb2 both swap. Don't see a way of overriding this.

2. Install finishes and reboots. No ip.

3. I edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and put a static ip in eth1 section.

4. ./rc.inet1 - ifconfig shows ip on eth1 but not able to ping internet.

5. edited /etc/rc./rc.inet1.conf again to be dhcpd and removed fixed ip.

6. ./rc.inet1 again

7. ifconfig shows eth1 with fixed ip (should have been dhcp ip) but still cannot ping internet.

what am I doing wrong. I had this working before, so I am some what perplexed.

There is a bug that was fixed (check project status) in rc.inet1.conf but misplaced by accident... the fixed rc.inet1.conf it's in "/etc/" if you want to use it..
Format the drive/partition with previous SMS installation with the installer and reboot, it's an issue of cfdisk, sometimes needs a restart to update tables, and after reboot reinstall.
Just use dhcpcd eth1 don't edit rc.inet1.conf for that.

thanks.

So, if I wanted a fix ip address, I would edit /etc/rc.inet1.conf eth1?

Or, ifconfig eth1 192.168.0.60?

thanks

Not exactly /etc/rc.inet1.conf shouldn't be there, but /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf, just replace the old one in /etc/rc.d/ with the one in /etc/.
I recommend to edit rc.inet1.conf for fixed IP address and include subnet mask, getaway..
You could use webmin for doing those of course and set your DHCP server if don't have one already (dslrouter).
