Dear Alex

Thx. for this quick reply. I would appreciate a short clarification.
> you can do "/etc/init.d/networking restart" to start it.
Is this a command I need to give in in in terminal or is it a file I
need to open with a text editor like Kate?

> Do do it at boot up I believe is "/etc/netwrok/interfaces" you add "eth0 auto"

Pls. clarify: do I need to open a terminal at the earliest possible
stage of the start up procedure? Or do I simply need to use some text
editor to add 'eth0 auto' to the file "interfaces" in the folder

Thx. for replying and have a sweet dream night.
