great tip.....

but my system is in read-only mode and I can't figure out how to write the file.....any suggestions?

I found the problem. I did this:
/etc/init.d/networking restart

It complained about an option with empty value.
couldn't read interfaces file /etc/network/interfaces
  option with empty value

Turns out the netmask and gateway for eth0 were empty, so I changed this:
To this:

Anyone else stumbling on this thread will have to determine the correct values in their own environment.
Try ifconfig on a working linux machine or ipconfig /all   on a windows machine.

Installation issues / Re: Frozen Screen After Install

I think I may have found the problem (should have searched the forum better for the answer)...but now I have a new question....

I only have one NIC (that seems to be the problem with others in similar situation)....

1.  Can I use a wireless USB adaptor as NIC 2?
2.  If yes, do I need to do a clean install, or is there a way for the system to recognize it?

I followed the wiki installations instructions for 8.10beta exactly.  Everything came up as it should...went through AV settings....but when it went to reboot (and every power off and reboot after that), it goes through the bootup process, says "Loading LinuxMCE" or something like that....goes through loading the orbiter files.....then I get a black screen.  I can see the mouse arrow and can move it, but NOTHING comes up on the screen after that....looks frozen to me....

any thoughts?
