Hi! I just installed jaunty on my external HDD. I have a wired connection and accordingly put the proper addresses in the fields. Saved it and still it says auto eth0 connection failed.
Logged out, rebooted and still the same issue. It starts by saying "Settings network addresses" and afterawhile same error "connection to network failed". Please help! My network works through Arch and windows installed in my internal HDDs.

did you add the ip info using network manager? post output of ifconfig from the terminal

Can you also send us content of /etc/network/interfaces

Can you also send us content of /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

And my ifconfig is as it supposed to be. I don't think there's any need for that. Any ways, the main question is where is /etc/rc.conf or resolv.conf ?? How can I set up my IP/DNS manually?? Since using the KNetwork manager isn't working.

Err..I just founf out that I don't have a resolv.conf file in /etc

Any ideas?

Create your own /etc/resolv.conf file and add the nameservers and it should work.
Also make sure your IP add and gateway and dhcp/Static is added in /etc/network/interfaces
