cannot configure network access in suse 10

hi all..
I am running Suse Linux 10 on my Compaq Presario M2202TU Notebook.
There are couple of things i need help in..
I connect to the internet using my college LAN network. In windows xp, this means that i just plug in the LAN cable to the ethernet card, and it automatically gets connected. I do not have to set any Static IP address. IP address is automatically set.
These are the details as I see it in Windows XP
Address Type : Assigned by DHCP
IP Address : 134.x.x.x
Default Gateway : 134.x.x.x
DNS Server : 134.x.x.x

Now I have no issues at all with windows. The connection is via the college proxy server, which I have to authenticate with my username & password. But I have been unsuccessful in setting up the network in SUSE. My ethernet card is detected properly (Realtech RTL8139 Family PCI Fast NIC). Could you please help me configure the network? I have tried tweaking around with YAST, but have had no success.

You need: dhcpcd - DHCP client daemon

Type in your console dhcpcd and wait for DHCP assigned address.
