do you have a dhcp server on your network? try

dhcpd
pump
dhclient

and see if any of those get you on the network. If not you can do it manually, but you will have to know the internal ip address of the router you are hooked to or of the isp's router if your connected directly. Then you would do this ( assuming the routers internal ip is 192.168.1.1 ) and your card was eth0

ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.100
route add default gw 192.168.1.1
echo nameserver 192.168.1.1 > /etc/resolv.conf

Looks like it is a workstation, Yes? If so, open a terminal and type:

su -
{your root password}

ifconfig eth0 the address you wish to give it/the subnet you wish to have. 255.255.255.0 = 24

See if that works.
