you don't need any programs. you need to set that NIC's protocol to DHCP, asuming that's what your provider does.. that's it really... you can do that in netconfig, or do it manually.

open a command prompt in win2000

run this command

ipconfig /all

-----------------------------------------------
make note of the following ip addresses

your ip address and netmask
the gateway ip address
dns ip addresses

-----------------------------------------------
get your isp provided hostname
-----------------------------------------------
run linux

substitute your win2000 ip address for the 111.111.111.111 and your netmask for 255.255.255.0
set your ip address with this command....

ipconfig eth0 111.111.111.111 netmask 255.255.255.0
----------------------------------------------
next, substitute the gateway from win200 for the 111.111.111.222 address to set the gateway with this command....

route add default gw 111.111.111.222

-------------------------------------------------

then, substitute your win2000 dns addresses and run these three commands....

echo > /etc/resolv.conf

echo nameserver 111.111.111.333 > /etc/resolv.conf

echo nameserver 111.111.111.444 >> /etc/resolv.conf

----------------------------------------------------

next substitute your hostname provided by the isp for yourhostname and run this command.....

hostname yourhostname

-----------------------------------------------------


This is about all I can come up with based on the info you provided.

if you have trouble give more info.


open a browser and try to connect as you do with win2000.

you can seatup roaring penguin and you should be ok. let rp-pppoe set it up.

http://www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe/

here's some options if you are having trouble with it.

try with and without the domain added to your username, some ISP's require it.

/etc/ppp/options
lock
defaultroute
noipdefault
noauth
passive
asyncmap 0
name user@domain
user user@domain
plugin /usr/lib/pppd/plugins/pppoe.so


/etc/ppp/chap-secrets
user@domain * yourpassword
