EXACTLY how do I access Internet from CentOS 5.0?
My Windows machine is in for repair (2 weeks) and I need to set up my CentOS Linx machine (Pentium III) at home to access my email and my wife needs to get to her email - either by going to the internet to read it PREFERRED or by just downloading it to the computer OK. The main problem is : I don't have the smarts to know how to do this. I have a BellSouth DSL modem, and I have a 4 port "network" card in the back of the computer. This card is recognized as "eth0", so the computer knows it's there.
I spent an hour last night fumbling around without success. Is there some step by step documention that would show me how to do this?
(Maybe a form with blanks where I just fill in the configuration details - but tells me which files to change and where they are at?)
Obviously, I am a real newbie at this.

I can access this from work only.
