Question setup internet cablemodem with username & passw

Hello all,

How can I setup my internet connection with Mandrake 10.0 final.
I have tried to do this with the browser konquer, but it did not work.
I also tried with drakconnect.
drackconnect ask for hostname and zeroconf, what is this?
The system did not ask me to fill in a username of pasword to connect the internet.

What I used to do in winXP,
I chose for a broadband connection, with username & passw.
Ip adresses chosen by windows, I do not have to setup TCP/IP, that is already done with installation of winXP.

Can someone pls help or show me the way to do it.
