yes, the Live CDs are fully functional, only you can't save any documents or configurations.

Usually, you shouldn't have to enter all that stuff. Most internet providers use auto-configuration via DHCP. So you should just configure your network connection to use DHCP, and it should be fine because the important settings are probably stored in the broadband cable modem - unless your provider uses a totally different approach (from your name, I guess that you're in India, and I don't know what's common there). But then you should have received a list of configuration parametes.
Whether you use automatic (DHCP) or manual configuration, you can leave the domain field blank.
