yes, of course. (oops! i forgot to mention earlier)

now you got typo ;-) correct is .1 not .10 ;0)

/etc/hosts 192.168.0.1 netbsd
/etc/resolve.conf nameserver 126.96.36.199

it does not. "ping 192.168.0.1" is successful but everything else
fails. i tried :
ping www.google.com & ping 188.8.131.52
i also tried: traceroute -n 184.108.40.206 & i got something like this:
traceroute to 220.127.116.11 (18.104.22.168), 64 hops max, 40 Bytes packet
1 * * *
2 * * *
3 * * *
4 * * *
5 * * *
6 * * *
7 * * *
(it did not stop so did "Ctrl-c" here :-(
BTW i want to mention 2 things:
1.) On Linux i also use "192.168.0.2" as my computer's IP address. we
did not use that here.
2.) when i boot up then "sendmail" takes a loooong time to complete
its boot up operations. in the end i also get a message like:
"unqualifed my (netbsd) hostname: sleeping for retry" & then i have to
hit Ctrl-c to get login prompt.

hey thanks for telling that.
