Hi. I have a windows xp system and with sbcglobal dsl. I recently installed Linux Suse and I have never been able to get my dsl to work with it. It still works fine with xp. Probably missing some settings but don't know what they are. The Indians at sbc says linux is not supported but a friend of mine has Suse and sbc and his works fine. He has a router though and I am going straight from the card. Can somebody help me?

Does SBC use DHCP, PPPoE, or static assignments? You should be able to tell from looking at how your XP system is configured.

I believe it is PPPoE.
Then have you set up your system for PPPoE?
