NVIDIA MCP network card installed but "not found" I can't finish DSL install

I'm a newbie to Linux. Although I have played around with earlier releases in the past, I've never had this kind of problem with a network card configuration.

During the Mandrake 9.2 install, it looked for my network card but said it couldn't find it. After installation I ran Hard-drake from the desktop and it said the network card was there and properly identified as NVIDIA MCP; this is correct. But when I try to complete my email and DSL/DHCP installation, it just loops after installing the network card driver and it tells me that it can't find a network card so it can't continue. Now how weird is that?

I'm running an ASUS A7N8X motherboard with NVIDIA chipset and video (all properly identified and working) and an on-board NVIDIA MCP network card (also with a properly installed driver but auto-detect says that it can't find it and won't let me continue)

Any help you guys can provide would be appreciated.

Also, please tell me how to fix this in 1st grade language because although I can get around Linux, my configuration skills are lacking.
