eth0 and eth1 refer to your netowork cards. Do you have two netowork cards in your computer?
If so you probably have them configured to obtain their IP address via DHCP. You will have to change this to static IP like 10.1.1.2 and 10.1.1.3. Make sure you give both your cards different IP addresses.

Do a google search for how to do this in Mandrake

Can I use the same IP as my windows IP, if not then how do I find out what IP I can use.

Also, How do I mount my harddrives? The only ones I can see are my 2 CD drives

Also, how can I make Mandrake boot up in a graphic way and not the text way? I know how to log in and start it up (type in "startx") but i would rather not.

1. yes you can use the same ips as your windows machine if you are using dual boot. If there is a windows machine on your netowork with the same ip it will cause problems for you.

2. to mount harddrives you have to use the mount command. Do a google search on how to use this. You can mount harddrives at boot time by using fstab. again do a google search on how to do this.

3. You will have to change your runlevel to 5. edit the file /etc/inittab and change the runlevel from 3 to 5

I cont get my internet to work. Could it be because my router? When you choose "static" there are 3 places to write stiuff. IP, Mask and gateway. What do I put there and how do I find them. Could it be that I didnt actualy configure the cards durring the installation? I just chose the card type that was highlighted on the list. Ifso, how can I fix that?

IP
place 10.1.1.2 for the first network card and 10.1.1.3 for the second network card

Mask
This will be the same mask that the router uses. it will be someting like 255.255.255.0. Does your router have a be interface to connect to and change things? If so connect to it via a web browser and see what it is using.

Gateway
This is where all the network traffic will be routed through. In this case it will be the same IP as the router. Again log onto the router via a web browser and see what its ip is. Also make sure that the router is not acting as a DHCP server because you have now set up static ip addresses. The routers address will be either 10.1.1.1 or 192.168.1.1

Ive tried everything and still no luck... so far my first experiance with linux is a bad one. What do I put as my server host? I use Shaw Cable for internet.

I made my IP 192.bla.bla.bla, my gateway as 192.bla.bla.bla and put my server as shaw.ca and it said I was connected but I couldnt access any web pages.

(I don't really use my 2nd card so I don't really care about it)

just put anything as the host. Mine is linux

You will also need to set up the name server. The name server will have the same IP as the gateway
