Angry n00b internet woes

Hello All!
I am just getting my feet wet with Linux , just having loaded xandros 3 on my box in a dual boot mode with XP Pro. Installation was a snap and I have everything working with the exception of internet connectivity.I am on roadrunner using a motorola pcx2600 cable modem and have a onboard network interface I use to run with linux. I set up the connection using both dhcp and manual settings and the box will connect on manual setting tho really slow that I have no connectivity. I ran a ipconfig on my XP OS to get settings , imputing ip, gateway, subnet mask, and dns settings. I am at a loss to what I have done wrong or have not setup correctly. Any help is greatly appreciated!

So we can see what's going on. Also, since you didn't mention it, what ethernet card are you running, if you don't know, post the results of:
