Mac OS 8.5-9  Internet Setup Assistant
Macintoshes running MacOS 8.5 through 9: Internet Setup Assistant 

The Internet Setup Assistant is a utility that guides you, step by step, through the network configuration 
process. If you are running your Macintosh for the first time, the Internet Setup Assistant will launch 
automatically during the setup dialog process. Otherwise, you can launch Internet Setup Assistant from its 
alias in the Internet folder on your hard disk (the utility itself is located in Internet->Internet Utilities). 

LAUNCH INTERNET SETUP ASSISTANT
(Your Hard Disk->"Internet" Folder->Internet Setup Assistant alias) 

Internet Setup Assistant guides you through a sequence of ten windows, promting you for configuration 
information in the following order:

          1. Configuration name and connection type.
                 Name examples: "RiverNet". 
                 Select Modem.

          2. IP address. 
                 Select No.

          3. DNS addresses and Domain Name.
                 Enter these DNS addresses, each on a separate line: 
                205.130.32.8
                 205.130.32.13
                 The domain name is rivnet.net

          4. E-mail address and password (optional). 
                 If you have an e-mail address, you can enter it (e.g., jdoe@rivnet.net) and your account 
                 password, but you can also choose to leave these fields blank. If you enter this information, you 
                 can change it later in the Internet control panel (Apple Menu->Control Panels->Internet).

          5. E-mail account and host computer (optional). 
                 If you have an e-mail account, you can enter your account (e.g., jdoe@mail.rivnet.net) and 
                 outgoing mail server (e.g., mail.rivnet.net), but you can also choose to leave these fields blank. 
                 If you enter this information, you can change it later in the Internet control panel (Apple 
                 Menu->Control Panels->Internet).

         6. Newsgroup host computer (optional). 
                 Enter news.rivnet.net or leave blank.

          7. Proxies. 
                 Select No.

          8. Conclusion. 
                 Select Go Ahead. Internet Setup Assistant closes and configures the system with your settings. 
                 If you are unable to make a network connection after completing this procedure, restart your 
                 Macintosh.
