Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If it works when you have the Internet plug connected, but not the network plug, are you using a modem or two NIC's???
Other then that, if you are using Windows 98 I think that you are asking this question on the wrong board. How ever, what you probably have is a newer card (made well after 1998) and 1998 has no clue what it is. What you need to do is to go download the drivers from the manufactures website.
sorry if it was confusing.. the thing is, earlier when the other computer was an winxp (which was my dad's) it worked fine. I have not changed anything in the configuration on my linux dist only that i have another computer to link up.. a one with win98 instead of winxp.
I don't know where to begin.. is it another configuration needed for a win98 to work with linux or is it the hub.. or should i change the network card configuration on my linux dist to work with the hub..
before it worked just fine to use the hub.. but now nothing works when i have my mdk92 linked trough a hub to internet and a win98..
