Does anyone know how to save an MTU setting in Mandrake 10.1? Reason being that my ISP is AOL and my MTU settings need to be 1400. They are 1500 by default, no probs in setting the MTU to 1400, upon rebooting the MTU goes back to 1500. Don't know how to save it.
Then do you have ifcfg-eth-anything-at-all? If you don't, I'm rather curious as to how your ethernet card works at all. SuSE usually names the ifcfg file after the mac address of the card, but my version of Mandrake (10.1 official) uses eth0. Have a look in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts and see what else is there.
Managed to edit the file and enter MTU=1400. Rebooted and guess what? Hooooray!!! It did as you said! rebooted at MTU 1400. All I can say is that you lads certainly know your stuff!!! and I'm greatfull for the help you all gave me!
