Question Mandrake 8.2 / Conexant LANfinity ethernet

i am an extreameeeeeeeeeeee linux newbie
i have 2 main questions and was wondering if someone could help me out step by step on them a little walkthrough if you will ..
i have a laptop with mandrake 8.2
it is a 1700t with a conexant LANfinity network card
does anyone know a easy way to get the card working?
it is not auto detected..

question 2:
has anyone got a nomad jukebox (first one) to work with linux, and is there any software i could find to get it to work?

p.s. keep in mind i am a linux noob but im learning the basics .. so any help would be appreciated, the more in detail you get the more id love you!!

You can search the web for information on the network card by saying "linux" and [name of card]. You might find a reference to the correct driver. You can try the "tulip" driver (select this in the network card setup). I don't know if it works for your network card, but it worked for mine and is a bit "generic," I think.
