fist i have to excuse my bad englisch, second am new to lfs and third i
have trouble with my lfs-box
the system itself still runs well, but i need to configure my network.
the module (ne) is loaded and the ethnet script is runnig well, but i can
not ping on my mashine when using its name or localhost or the fwhn. the
/etc/hosts file has the entries it needs using my old distribution
(rh60) and the /etc/host.conf includes the correct order (first hosts then
while th installation i did use the new 2.4.0-test1 kernel but had to
change back afterwards to 2.2.14 i am not sure if this is the couse of my
trouble, but when i can not get it fixed i can not use the box as a local
router and firewall.

i hope you can help me
