Question setting up internet on Mandrake

I temporarily have a copy of Mandrake Move until my second hard drive arrives and I can install Mandrake 10 Official and according to the Mandrake site Mandrake Move can access the internet but when I go to set it up it doesn't work. I try hitting connect so it autoconnects but it says I have no internet connection even though I have a working DSL connection hooked up. It asks me to give a DNS server and a name for my computer on my domain like or something like that. Where do I go about finding these things? I'm also hooked up through a router as me and 3 other people share 1 DSL connection so I imagine this may complicate things somewhat. Any ideas would be appreciated so I can enjoy my MandrakeMove experience more until my second hard drive gets here and I can enjoy the real thing

I can't speak for Mandrake Move , but both Mandrake 9.1 and 9.2 found my broadband connection during setup, and i also am using a router that assigns an automatic IP address. You might go to mandrake control center and click on network and internet and see what address if any it assigned to your computer.
