Mandrake 9.1 not connecting

Just installed mandrake 9.1 and I am unable to get the network connection working. I have worked through the mandrake Control Center but to no avail.
The nic is a built in VIA VT6103 (which I would expect that Mandrake setup the drivers correctly)

Here is output of the ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:4C:A7:82:0C
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:67 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
Interrupt:16 Base address:0xe800

eth0:9 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:4C:A7:82:0C
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
Interrupt:16 Base address:0xe800

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr: Mask:
RX packets:554 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:554 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:46262 (45.1 Kb) TX bytes:46262 (45.1 Kb)
One thing that I see that is wierd is the eth0:9 - what does the :9 mean?

.. And here is the output of the route -n command:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 lo
I understand that the has something to do w/ Samba

My gateway is

Thanks in advance!

since your gateway is, you will need a NIC with an IP in the same network as your gateway (which is usually 192.168.1.x).

once you have that, you can tell mandrake about your gateway by unsing the command:

route add -net gw
