Net problems


Ok so pumped just installed linux for the first time, no problems in the install, but just hit something now. I cant get it to pick up internet. I am running Mandrake 9.2 running KDE. I go into the Control Center and it has my interface eth0 and the State is down. The ethernet is onboard, does this make a differnce, should i get a PCI one? any help thanks.
