OK, this one has me a little stumped. I have a box for playing about with and learning Moodle, and it's been rebuilt at least 7 times in the last 4 weeks. Mostly using SuSE, once using Windows Server 2003 and once with both. Not once during those did I have this problem.
Yesterday I zapped the box and partitioned 15Gb for Windows, 55Gb for a common Data share, and left 15Gb unpartitioned . I installed Windows Server 2003 on the first partition from a Ghost partition image, and installed SuSE on the unpartitioned space and left it going last night.
I finished it off today and now Linux will not connect to the internet or network, but Windows works fine. I've quadruple checked the DNS and Gateway settings, tried pinging the DNS servers by their IP address, swore at it, disabled the firewall, all to no avail.
It's baffling me quite frankly
