Ok, I got it working! I connected with PuTTY. On to the next problem. Now my computer is using the dhcp way of connecting. I am trying to follow this step in the tutorial.:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
The problem is that before I do that, my box can connect to the internet, I can ping a site and get a response. If I do this step and restart the network, the pings no longer work. I lose the connection. I should add that my router's address is, but if I try putting that in for network or gateway, the network wont even restart. You can see the tutorial here:

Any thoughts?
