kde select different networks


As I have searched through the forums, I did not have any post that addresses my question. So, I open a new thread.

First: I am totally clueless to the networks. All I know is, IP address, Default Gateway, Server Address, proxy address and some basic terminology. Nothing more.

Let me describe what I have at hand and what I want to do:

I have a notebook running Kubuntu Dapper. I am using it at home and at work. At home, I connect to my ADSL service without *any* problems.

At work, we have this M$ Exchange 2003 Server, and Win XP Pro is installed on our clients.

I want to be able to connect my laptop to my company's network. In this network we have static IP's assigned.

Here are my questions.

1. When I plug in the eth cable and boot my system, I log onto my _own_ computer. How can I log on to the company's network? [You know, XP asks your user/pass at logon. I don't know how to do that in my Kubuntu box.]
2. Can I connect to my mailbox [calendar, to-do's whatever] and my documents which reside on the server? [AFAIK, this file server is not Exchange.]
3. When I come back home, I want my ADSL connection to work normally. So I don't want to mess with its configuration.

I have installed the knetworkconf to my notebook, but it says that you can not "add" networks. I am totally confused, since this program looks like it would do the job for me.

When I was using SuSE's 9.x releases [I don't remember exactly], I ran into a program named something like "k network selector" [which again I don't remember exactly]. I have found a similar program, but it just shows me the wireless networks, and just one my wired network.

I found some network configuration stuff on the internet, but I am so clueless that I didn't understand anything except the "introduction" or "foreword" chapters.

Can anyone give me a hand on this?
