RE: [K12OSN] USB and Floppy support not working



Petre,

Thanks for the link. I've gone through the twelve steps and it looks like step 4 (Does your workstation know its name) is the issue. When I enter hostname I receive "(none)" as the response. I checked the various /etc/dhcpd.* files, and all seems to be as it should. :-/ 

Anyone have any further ideas?

-Calvin

Noting that my previous message was not much help since you're using LDAP, you might see 
the LDA troubleshooting checklist:
