Question D-Link DE-528 Need Help Setting up

I am haveing problems setting up my network card which is a D-Link DE-528. I am using Caldera e2.4 on a windows-linux network or that is the plan. The drive I have loaded is ne2k-pci. My Win98 machine is connected to a hub and the hub is connected to my cable modem. I have connected my linux machine to the hub. When I had both machines running Win98 both connected to the cable modem. The cable system provides a static ip address which it pulls up the first time you set the system up. I made note of both of the ip addresses but not sure if this is ok for linux and even where to put them if I have to set it up manualy. I think the first thing is to get the network up and running before attempting to access the internet.

Just get a DHCP client when you setup your box. You may need to send the 'hostname' as an identifier (not client-identifier) for most cablemodem ISPs. With dhcpcd client I use something like:
dhcpcd -d -h csNNNNNN eth0
the -d tells it to log verbosely and the -h tells it to send the hostname you supplied (the csNNNNNN).
