This is new for me David.  The first 'a' of 'auto lo' was highlighted after I 
opened sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces.  I pressed the down arrow and made 
the addition; it looks like this:

auto lo until there was a space between:
iface lo inet loopback
address 127.0.0.1
netmask 255.0.0.0

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

It looked like you made a 'ctrl O'  or the large letter 'O" not the number 
zero, so I pressed 'ctrl <the caps key>O' nothing appeared to happen.  I then 
pressed 'ctrl x', again nothing appeared to happen.

I don't think it was saved, or that ctrl x exited me, because the window that 
appears like a shell remained.  The 'file' menu did not show a save option.  I 
closed the window usiing the X in the upper right corner.

I opened Dolphin and went to /etc/network/interfaces and checked, and it was 
not saved.  I then opened kdesudo kate and edited the interfaces entry by 
making the addition you suggested.  I clicked on save and closed the 
application.

The current ifconfig is:

I tried again to send and receive an email.  I got the same error:

Unknown Host pop.att.yahoo.com

I rechecked Kmail configuration and confirmed that it is correct.  I have done 
this same step with Eberhard, Hein and others.  As a last minute check before 
sending, I rechecked interfaces and they are as you requested.  I rechecked 
Kmail configuration again.  Perfice.  Everything has been tripple checked.

The connection each time has been direct from the broken computer to the DSL 
modem.  Thanks!

Steven
