    Yay had some success with this i have now got linux ubuntu server succesfully intalled on the tower although as earlirt suggested it seems i have no internet connectivity i have tried with dhcp and also with setting to static ip but nothing i do seems to get it online i have tried to ping google but it wont ping

    i use these instructions to set to static

    1. give your server a static ip. put this line in and press enter

    nano /etc/network/interfaces

    change the dhcp to static then under it put like this
    address 192.168.1.78
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    broadcast 192.168.1.78
    gateway 192.168.1.254

    ofcourse these are my ips so please change to your own ips

    once done hold ctrl+x press y then enter
    now to restart network put this line in

    /etc/init.d/networking restart

    but the restart fails
