Post your /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX files (where ethX is eth0, eth1, eth2 etc. whatever you've got)

Does the connection work? Does it get an IP address through DHCP?

What are rest of the files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts?

The Mandrake Update program is what you use to update Mandrake (see menu->System->Configuration->Packaging). The first time its run it'll ask you to choose a mirror to get updates from.

The easyurpmi site lists the mirrors for all the repositories for Mandrake/Mandriva (including the updates). You should setup the repositories using that site as the 3 install CDs you download don't have the full set of software on them.

Your processor is covered by i586 which is the default so you shouldn't have any problems.
