Red face port replicator with mandrake 9.2

I have a Compaq Presario 1200 laptop that I just installed Mandrake 9.2 on. I have a cable connection, but my laptop doesn't have a network card (nor room for one). My uncle gave me this laptop that was a business computer. A geek dude that worked for him used to use it. It came with a USB port replicator here. Apparently it's only supported with windows, so I'm having quite the problem now, that I can't get my laptop online. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to LQ.

I'm not sure about getting the replicator to work but do you not have any PCMCIA slots that you could use for an ethernet connection?

I'll move the thread to "Linux - Laptop and Handheld" as you are likey to get better answers for your initial question there.
