First of all, sorry about the mail I sent earlier. I usually run Linux
mandrake with vmware, and no doubt it works fine because I have RAM of
512. I cleaned out the windows OS and replaced it with the Linux
Mandrake 9.1 RC2. It detected the Intel wireless, with the Ethernet.
Installation was smooth to the very end. After all said and done, I
launched galleon, but unable to go online. I use DSL and it works fine,
but using smbclient to connect to other computer worked. I just
understand y the internet is not coming through. 

Thanks a lot guy for support.

First of all, do send your mail in plain text instead of HTML, as you
see above it ia hardly readable.

On the Mandrake mailinglists there where some threads about having no
connection in  MDK9.1.
The solution could be to uninstall the "shorewall" firewall, and replace
it by 
another one like "firestarter", wich is also on the cd's.
About next week the fnal release of Linux-Mandrake 9.1 will be anounced.
Maybe it's fixed then.
Otherwise, give us A better discription about your problem, error
what happens exactly. So that people on this list can help you.
Just A plain "no internet"could be anything like your internet provider
went bankrupt. ;-)
