Kubuntu, can not set up for internet access

OK, I finished installing Kubuntu 7.10 from a DVD. I do not have the faintest idea how to set up internet access. I am impressed by the desk top and I want to kill Windows but Linux seems frighting. Thanks for your help.

Go into the main menu (the button at the left end of the panel). Look for an Internet or Network menu, then start looking through the menu until you find the tools to configure internet access. I haven't used Kubuntu, so I can't give you any better information than that.
