The 4th screen (actually would be the fifth, as there is an initial information screen only …) asks you to decide which type of connection you are using. If you got Fibertel for example, have to put DHCP, since it assigns you an IP Fibertel that way. The most common is to PPPoE, and then have to fill out a form with username and password for your ADSL account. It also calls for two nameservers, try them before asking your supplier. Here in Argentina the supplier does not usually say them (never understood why) and less if they are told it is for a linux. The solution was to say it is for a Macintosh, and I gave them to the two DNS right away (it seems that the old Mac if they needed or if the DNSs) The Hostname and Domain can be filled with anything. The next screen (5th I think) asked if enabled the DHCP service on Linux, which makes the internal PCs to the network is configured automatically.

Put yes and he will help, but equally if you need to put a PC with a fixed IP on your network no problems, going to live with the PCs that are configured via DHCP. Then in the 6th put screen asks which or which are red.Esta plates may be the most cumbersome if you do not know exactly the model of network card installed. Should be fixed before and note the chipset. One plate is the most common RTL8139, which in the soft coyote linux needs to be put as 8139too. The display 7 calls which will be add the language to use and it is passed to the Windows diskette creator. If the disk is of good quality is not going to complain. Only have the PC is armed with two plates network and disk drive, a plate is the ‘modem’ ADSL, and in the other the rest of the network. Put the floppy disk and boot the PC. There are PCs that do not accept boot without keyboard and there are others that can set in the BIOS that allows booting without a keyboard. If you do not have a PC of these will have to leave a keyboard attached forever. If it is an arm linux for others, and do not want to be sloppy about having to have a keyboard hook, you can disarm and put an old keyboard into the PC keyboard insert and is more verbose. He who has a monitor or not is irrelevant, but is usually good to see the boot process. y. .. A router-linux put to work!
