How to get internet working on Mandrake 10.0

Got Mandrake 10.0 official.

i can't connect to Internet. i get my ip from the company's server. I login by the company website at an IP-adresse. But, we can't get that site to working.

When I use XP to login on the Internet i get to the company's website there I enter user name and password.

i use zyxel Modem for my ADSL connection.

How should I do to get my Ethernet working and so it's connecting to my company server?

what does the following words mean an what do they have for purpose?

Need to go through this one step at a time. Each network card in a computer needs an ip address. The company will either allocate you with a static address and a subnet address which you should then use. If they are using dhcp then the ip address is "leased" to your network card for a given time. In order to use dhcp you need to have dhcp-client installed which I am sure you have. I don't use Mandrake but do know they have a networking tool installed which should make it fairly easy to set up given what I have said above. As far as connecting to the internet is concerned your company sysadmins should have given you a gateway address to use. i.e. the network card connected to wan. Hope this make things a bit easier for you.
