I've read 'Networking with coLinux' manual at Wiki's site and set up networking successfuly using NAT on WinXP. I've already updated system with 'apt-get update' and everything seemed to work perfect.
 
I noticed that there's no gcc compiler. I used 'apt-get install gcc' to install it.
I can't find header files in include path too when compiling source:
stdio.h , netdb.h , time.h , netinet/*.h , sys/*.h ...etc. Are these headers included in some package? How can I install them? /usr/local/include is empty.
 
Maybe I should try different root file system than Debian?

Hi Blade,
 
apt-get install is your friend; check the debian documentation... I don't know the exact package names. ftp client: the 'simple' one is in a package inetutils or something like that. You can try ncftp, which should be just: apt-get install ncftp. irc: don't use it, so you're on your own... links / lynx: apt-get install links / apt-get install lynx should do your trick.
 
Of course you do need to get basic networking to work first. Can you access the network at all? Does, for instance, 'apt-get update' work?
If not, you need to set up networking infrastructure first, using perhaps an http proxy.
 
regards,
