Need help connecting to LAN

I've just installed Mandrake 9.2 on this computer but I can't seem to be able to connect to the LAN and get onto the Internet. My Broadcom 4400 Integrated (bcm4400) has "down" status when I check in the configurations menu. Shouldn't it be able to automatically configure my connection when I set it to DHCP?

Make sure your ethernet driver is installed/loaded. On root, try

ifconfig eth0
