Having trouble getting hooked up to the internet with redhat 9

Allright, I finnaly got redhat to workl and now I'm having trouble getting hooked up to the internet. When I was using windows on the computer I connected to the internet with a blitz wireless adapter. When I tried to get on the internet with mozilla it didn't work. Obviously I needed to set up a connection. Should put it as that the computer is connected through a wireless adapter? What information should I put down in all the blanks?
Thank you in advance.

it all depends

What you need is a little more information for us to feed on, il try to tell you where to start
but there are many more qualified people here that can help.

does your isp use DHCP to assign client ips? or do they tell you what your computers address should be? Howabout name servers? do they have one or do they refer you to someone elses. Fire up redhat-config-network/neat: this is where you put stuff into the blanks, theres a button for DHCP and one for Server assigned nameservers, or there are blanks to fill out, apparantly you already know that, but gee i sure do love to type.
