no internet or networking on dual boot

i am having a problem i am sure someone has fixed before. i am running 2 boxes, 1 a dual boot w/ xp pro and mandrake 10.1. the other i would like to setup as a file server for my band. i have a usr hardware modem, and both boxes have a linksys lne 100 nic. main box is an a7n8x-x mobo, amd 1.5ghz cpu, 512 mb ram, 250 gb hd, nvidia geforce 5200 w/ 256mb ram. all hardware is showing in mandrake, but cannot dial out or see anything on the network. p.s i am a true noobie, so be nice to me, lol. thanx..

What software are you using to dial?

Does it give you any error messages?
