[Sounding shamefully simple with her questions and answers, she answers:]
I have an onboard LAN on my main board (10/100 ethernet) for the Linux server, (just one), and a D-link network card (DFE-680 TX/TXD CardBus PC Card) for my laptop (came with the dsl modem), with a cross-cable connected in between (given to me by my IT guy at work, who is not linux saavy).
My ifconfig output is:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:6E:13:DF:A1
inet6 addr: fe80::20c:6eff:fe13:dfa1/10 Scope:Link

The route -n output is:

Sounds like I'm hitting a blank wall, no?
Like I said, I have TCP/IP enabled in ME, and the little lights are on on my network card, but it sounds like the server sees nothing, right doc?
***** oh, yeah, well i run the "ifconfig" without the cross-over cable properly plugged in and i get essentially the same thing, so this is depressing! Was this a "ping" attempt? Should i have gotten some feedback, even if one or the other of the server and client was incorrectly configured, so long as the cross-over cable is plugged between them?
