please define exactly what you can and can't do under linux. you have a LAN right? so can you ping other LAN nodes? what does the output of /sbin/ifconfig say? have you tried giving the NIC a static IP?

Well,I tried doing a ping on the LAN nodes,but it didn't work out.And I haven't tried giving a static IP to NIC,coz I don't know how to(Please forgive my braindead nature).What exactly can I do to get myself on the network?And will the other windows machine detect the Linux node?Plese advise.
