Fedora 11 new instal and how to connect to intenet

Hello everyone at LQ.,

Absolute beginner with linux and just managed to instal Fedora 11 on hard drive partitioned with XP home. Using Speedtouch 330 black modem and Broadband connection with Plus net. Can't find my way around the system to get Internet and e-mails up and running in Fedora.Any help appreciated. Please note you will be interacting with an absolute know nothing as far as the tecvhnical stuff goes but I love the ethos of Linux and free access etc. and want to make the move from XP to Linux. Unfortunately, I need lots of help. Already had Ubuntu installed but it wouldn't boot, so this is my second try with Fedora this time and I want to get it right.

Thanks in advance for remarks etc.

please open a terminal and type in
and paste what is returned in here. you might need to log in as root to do that: su - .

if you are using the same network card as you do with windows then the cable internet receiver should already have your computers mac address/ hwaddress already stored in it (i recommend using a router though).

maybe running dhclient as root will help ?
