Exclamation Network Card problems

Im not sure which forum I place this question in. Probably a linux newbie forum because I am new to linux. I still cannot install simple applications and such. but I have a problem. I have an Asus A7N8X-deluxe motherboard, and I have 2 networking ports. I cannot seem to find the approprate "net drivers" for my ethernets. I would like to get the internet on my linux side, but have not been able to make it work yet. I did get the Nvidia file from the site, but I dont think I got the right one because it was only 85k... Anyhelp with my networking problem is wanted. Also I have a router upstairs that may give me trouble. Thanks.

system specs.
Asus A7N8X-Deluxe
Dual booting with Win98 and mandrake 9.0
AMD 2400+
Nvidia 5200 graphics card. (I already learned how to set it up)
CD-R and DVD
anything else you would like to know let me know.

ohh, and I am really a linux . only a basic knowledge.

Smile Update on my Problem.

Good news, I can now get Mandrake to detect my Networking Card. I disabled the second one and it works now. The similar but new problem I have it getting my Cable connection by going through my router. If this is really a networking problem let me know and Ill place this in a diffrent fourm. i just posted it in the Newbie forum because I dont have a great knowledge of linux. Still needing help,

Note: Good news released a section on Libranet, it is another distro I might use considering I am using it at school !
