DistributionWatch Review: Corel Linux - page 9
Introducing Corel Linux
We tested Corel Linux both on a DSL-based network and a dial-up connection and had few problems.
DSL networking has been reported to give Corel Linux and other Linux distributions some problems, but these situations occur when IP addresses are dynamically assigned via a DHCP server. (Watch for further information on this topic in the near future on LinuxPlanet.) In our case, we used the Control Center to enter the machine name, the IP address, the gateway and the Domain Name Server; Corel Linux did the rest. When we launched Netscape Navigator, we were automatically connected to a preconfigured Corel Linux Web site. Still, it would have been more convenient to have network configuration as part of the general installation, in the same fashion that the Slackware Linux installation calls on the netconfig command during installation.
The Dell machine features a U.S. Robotics modem and we encountered no problems in setting up a dial-up connection to our ISP via KPPP. Again, we had to go through the Control Center, and it would have been more convenient to have network configuration as part of the general installation.
