Connecting Mandrake client Edit

{{{ As I was a Mandrake expert club member, I would seriously say "This is
a recurrent MDK problem". Not a Locust problem. When a MDK wireless adaptor is bound
on another interface rather wlan0 (eth0), then you'll have routing problem.
You're MDK won't take the whole DHCPPACK informations sent by the MeshAP. MDK script distros
(from 8.2 to 10.1 without fix !) is planning you'll use eth0 as principal
gateway and then will try to find a gateway on eth0 and will ignore any
other default route on others interfaces.
MDK is too much integrated, bugged, and "windows like" to spend time
on reverse eng the init scripts which have been complexified by patches
all along releases since 5 years.
The only fix I found was to route add -net MY.LAN.NETWORK.IP
netmask MY.NETWORK.MASK gw eth1
and then route add default gw MY.GATEWAY.ADDRESS or Use debian, gentoo,
aknoppix opr whatever, but you'll be advised...

Just tried Kanotix Live CD, and get pretty much the same. i.e.
no routing information and no internet connection.
> [root@localhost root]# route -n
> Kernel IP routing table
> Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref
> Iface
> [root@localhost root]# ifconfig
> eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:09:5B:91:B1:5A
