If you know what the onboard NIC is, like a realtek 8139 or if you tell us the motherboard model, I can tell you if the NIC is supported.

If she gets DSL, normally they supply the DSL modem so she won't have to get one.

I recommend trying Mandrake 10.1. I found 10.0 to be quite buggy when compared to version 10.1.
