I have an iMac DV (grape if it matters) with an airport card in it. My problem is I can not get it to get any sort of network connection on the livecd, net-setup can't be found, and none of the kernel modules seem seem to do anything for my ethernet card that I can see in ifconfig. My airport card can be seen after I enter "modprobe airport" but I have no clue how I'd go about entering the password for my base station. I'd appreciate any help getting either my ethernet or my airport working off the liveCD.
Thank you in advance,

I've been playing around with a G3 Imac and ran into the same problem with the 2004 LiveCD. The following took care of it for me:

#modprobe sungem
#/etc/init.d/net.eth0 start

and if you're using dhcp

#dhcpd eth0

Otherwise you'll need to follow the manual network configuration
Using ifconfig and route

Hope this helps.
