I'm sure this question has been asked before but...how do i setup the network for Linux and xwindows?  Someone else installed it for me...but the network doesn't work.  So, I have no idea where to start.  References to any previous answers or web pages that would help will also be appreciated.
P.S. I'm using a Lynksys Ethernet Card - EtherPCI LAN Card II.  I just don't know how to do it

does your kernel detect a ther device?
See  /var/log/boot.msg,  there should be somthing like:

<4>Found PCnet/PCI at 0x7000, irq 11.
<4>eth0: PCnet32 at 0x7000, 00 80 5f 34 18 43 lance32_probe:  4
