How to connect SUSE to internet?


Ok to start of I will say newbie here. Last night I have tried to install 2 distros one Mandrake 10 the other SUSE 9.1 both installed without any problems. When I installed Mandrake it configured cable internet without any problems and I was able to access it right out the box without any any input from me. When I installed SUSE it did not configure my cable modem like trhat which have surprised me because this was the distribution I was hopping of using. Could anyone advise me how to configure it? Just for information it's a dual boot.

Thanks allot,

It's ethernet, but if it's not to much of a problem could you tell me for both.

I thank you
