Bear with me because its insane how big of a newbie I am to Linux.
I have my pc set up to dual boot: Win XP Pro, and Mandrake 10.0 64-Bit Version 2.6.3 Kernel, on an AMD Athlon64 3200+, which has a Linksys 802.11G 54MBps PCI card, and Onboard 3COM Gigabit.
The Onboard 3COM Gigabit is setup as eth0. This connects to hub and creates a LAN in my room which 2 other PC's connect to (both Windows based for gaming).
Linux detects my Linksys 802.11G PCI card but I cannot connect to the internet. And if I remember correctly, its setup as eth1.(I'm in XP right now writing this from memory.)
I went looking on the internet (in XP) for a driver, but everything I tried didn't work. I installed Linuxant DriverLoader and in theory, I should've been able to throw in my Linksys Driver CD and the DriverLoader would "convert" it to Linux, but for whatever reason it didn't work (most likely due to the idiot trying to use it.)
