ive done a HD install and logged in as root, then:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
and when i reboot and login as root again, the change gets lost.
ive tried logging in with another user, and su root aswell, but same problem.

i did also these changes

whats wrong.

There are several ways to make changes in files.

You can open a terminal and then a text editor, but if you're new to
linux then you may want to type "vimtutor" first and get an understanding of text

Another way I know of (there are more I'm sure) is to open file manager super user
mode then navigate to the files you want to change open the file with whatever GUI editor
you want ( kate is good ) Make the changes in the file(s) make sure you choose save from the
file manager menu, and it should work. Good luck.
