How to setup networking-internet for mandrake 9.0 ?

I have a laptop, currently installed with windows2000, when i hooked it up to my company's network, the internet connection is automatic.
I plan to install linux mandrake 9.0 as a dual boot system, just worry whether mandy will do as W2k ?

BTW, how to setup networking in mandrake?

When you install Mandrake it will set up your network card, but at some point during the procedure, you will have to check the DHCP button and then you should get internet access as soon as you connect to the network. I imagine you will have more of a problem seeing the other machines on the network however, I suspect you might need Lin Neighbourhood, Samba or some such. Kind regards.

No problem, evertything is running fine.
Mandrake can auto-detect my networking and I just go online automatically.
