Internet on Mandrake 9.1


Hi

I just installed mandrake 9.1 but i cannot setup an internet connection . I have a cable modem that connects to the ethernet.
What settings should i use? Should i choose cable modem or lan connection? I've tried a few things but i cant get it to work.
Please help me :|

type ifconfig -a to find out what your ethernet card is

then type dhclient eth0 (or whatever the name is)
