Oops. That was "L"spci. That tells what your PCI hardware is, as read when booting up (the true hardware chip lookups, so to speak)

From your lsmod output, I surmise you have a Network card from the DEC 410xx model family. The "tulip" module is loaded (Isame as the Linksys bastard I use - which is a clone of that chip family). LSPCI (in lower case) will tell you for sure if that's right, whcih it likely is. I also see that you enabled the firewall stuff too. If you're not online with all that, I can't help you, as I haven't enabled a software firewall since I got my router (I forget that stuff). Others here will know exactly what to do.

Aside, I see you have something IPV6 enabled. That's not really necessary, as almost no internet servers will be using that protocol soon.

If you can disable the firewall with Mandrake Control Center, it may be a good idea, to see if you're actually configured to be online. If so, you can figure out what the firewall is blocking that prevents you surfing away, so to speak.

Thanks for your help.. Would you reccomend reinstalling Mandrake and not checking the "firewall/router" box? That might be causing my problems?

If you wish, but you can likely remove the firewall with RPMDrake. Up to you. I'd disable the firewall to see if you could get connected and work from there

I finished reinstalling Mandrake Linux. I'm still not geting a internet connection, but I think it has something to do with my /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/resolv.conf~ files being empty... What exactly should be in these?

/etc/resolv.conf~ is the "backup" from when it was modified. If you're using DHCP, put in a line like this
Code:
nameserver 192.168.x.x #that being the IP of your router
in the /etc/resolv.conf file.

Okay, I finally got Eth0 to work, It's doing something it's never done before, Before it OK's, it does something like

Sending probe 3 for 255.255.255.127
Sending probe 1 for 255.255.255.127
Claiming ownership over 255.255.255.127
Watching for collisions

( Starting Up Internet Connection does the same thing, but they both "OK" )

I checked my /etc/resolv.conf file, Which had the following in it

search Comcast.net
nameserver 63.240.76.4
nameserver 204.127.198.4

/etc/resolv.conf~ is empty. Should I erase one of these name server lines and put
nameserver 198.162.1.1 ( My router ) In it? or?...

No. Leave them there. If you're connecting with DHCP, your DNS info is being sought and written to that file as you boot up. Its perfectly ok. The next reboot of your machine will probably populate /etc/resolv.conf~ with what's in /etc/resolv.conf.

That's just the way linux "backs up" config files that are modified. For example, I usually tweak my /etc/X11/XF86Config file (AKA XF86Config-4 or Xorg.conf) because when my Rage 128 Pro is recognized, the driver runs the card at 1x AGP, when it's capable of 4x. My motherboard only supports 2x, so I force it to enable at 2x instead of 1x. When finished, I still have a /etc/X11/XF86Config file (which is the modified one) and now I have /etc/X11/XF86Config~, which is the old file before the modification. If the new file is crap, you can always remane the old one and you're back where you were.
Code:
mv /etc/X11/XF86Config~ /etc/X11/XF86Config
Does that make sense?

I'm not geting an internet connection still.. As soon as I try to enter an address It can't be found, While before it would look for it for 20-25 seconds before it told me it couldn't be found.

The tulip module is being loaded, so you must have either a DEC 410xx or a clone, or the module loaded is wrong. What's lspci say about your eth card?

"L"spci isn't showing up as a command in gnome terminal.

I have a Macronix, Inc MXIC 1MX987x5 Net device.

On this page, it seems that the author has trouble with your type of card too. It hangs. This might be a module problem. The correct module for the card seems to be the tulip, but he's having trouble too.

You may need to be root to gat lspci info.

1. When you open up a terminal and su in as root use this command

su -

and then type in your root password. The hyphen will give you root's environment when you log in. It will put /sbin in your path, among other things, so that when you type lspci it will find it in /sbin/lspci. If you simply type

su

and then enter your password you are logged in as root but with the environment of the person you were when you typed su.

2. To keep your /etc/resolv.conf from being overwritten add this line

PEERDNS=no

to the appropriate ifcfg file. If your ethernet card is device eth0 then the file to add that line to is /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0.

Oh well... I think I'm going to try mandrake linux some other time. What is the best way to reinstall windows? Do I need to reinstall the bootloader? and if so, how?
