Well ;-)
You need informations from Your provider such:

Then try
man ifconfig
man route

Or, If You are inpatient ;-),
ifconfig eth0 YOUR-IP netmask YOUR-NETMASK up
route add default gw YOUR-GATEWAY
echo 'nameserver YOUR-DNS' > /etc/resolv.conf

And You are done ;-) Enjoy.

Dregreen - we need more info from you:
what distro are you running? (I'm guessing Mandrake)
how do you connect - phone line, usb, ethernet
do you need to set your ip details, or does your isp use DHCP?

Oh, and welcome to LQ
