comment Debian: No internet connection on reboot
Assuming everything else is correct (like this server really should be DHCP), I suspect that second interface should be: auto eth0. See man interfaces for more details.

comment Unable to connect to host via ssh
To solve the problem (if denyhosts was running on the server), have the server admin add an entry to hosts.allow for your IP.

comment Cannot forward when going through welcome screen for fedora 15
How long did you wait (after pressing "forward")? If you told it to "synchronize date & time over the network", it may sit and wait while it tries to contact a server, but it should eventually time out if it fails. If this is the issue, have you tried unchecking that box? It may be hanging on a networking issue (you can always re-enabled ntpd later.).

comment Unable to connect to host via ssh
If there is something like denyhosts running, it will temporarily (or permanently, depending on configuration) blacklist your IP (for incoming SSH), by putting an entry in /etc/hosts.deny Your output above is consistent with this scenario. Try to confirm this by SSH'ing to that box from another (external) IP. If you don't have more than one external IP, SSH into another offsite box then SSH into the box in question.

is the ssh server running something like denyhosts? Have you tried SSH'ing in from a different IP?

comment unable to mount smb share in fedora 14 through nautilus connect to server
Are you still having this problem? You should be able to connect via nautilus on F14. What fields are you providing in the "connect to server" dialog, and are you being prompted for a password?

comment Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6: /boot/grub/menu.lst or /boot/grub/grub.conf?
RHEL6 still follows the same behavior (menu.lst being a symlink to ./grub.conf) by default. (All my RHEL6 boxes are like that.) I just dropped SL6 into VM to compare, and I'm still seeing the same setup (menu.lst being a symlink to ./grub.conf) out of the box. All that to say: what version of grub is on your system (rpm -q grub), and did you enable any 3rd party repos, or install any third party software? I'm wondering if a 3rd party package may have tried to update the bootloader, and inadvertently broke the symlink. What are the differences between menu.lst and grub.conf?
