you can try that if you want,as there will be no need of any package..
Do you mean that I should type the command as follows to start/stop the connection?
Thanks a lot.

My connection is just a cable (cat 5, I think) coming to my home from a switch on the terrance of my building. There is no modem or router involved here. But yes, there is a user name and password. And in Windows I need to connect using a connection window. My situation is a bit weird to start with, so sorry if it sounds a bit odd. Thanks.

even if I follow the instructions on the wordpress url, what is the next step? what commands should I type in a terminal to install packages from the Fedora 14 DVD? I have no clue as to what packages are there on the DVD, as whenever I insert it into the DVD drive and try to see its contents there is an error - malformed url- can't understand what to do? Please guide me thanks.
