Please don't post in html it makes it hard to read your email as you can see
from above.
I also use coyote in a pentium to access the net.
All I did was setup coyote to use dhcp so it hands out ip addresses to the
windows computers connected to it.
The same applies with Suse. Use yast2 to tell the suse box to use dhcp and it
will receive an ip address from the router when it boots up.
