connecting to the internet

at work ive installed linux on a box to try to learn it. ive been piddling w/ linux for a while but dont have time at home. anywho, i need to get online. my network settings i think are ok, im set as dhcp, i set the gateway in the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 oh and im using slackware 8.0. But i need to put the proxy info in. I went in netscape but didnt see it off the bat so i went in konqueror and clicked settings- configure konqueror- proxy and entered in http://(proxyservername) and port 80 where it says http proxy. after applying and trying to go to a web page its says unknown proxy hosts (proxyservername). and when i go back into proxy settings it has removed the 'http://' and just says (proxyservername). now this is the same info that we have on the windows boxes. what am i doing wrong?

thanx in adv.
