Cable Modem proxy

I just installed Linux Mandrake for the first time. I would like to use it to browse the web also. However, I have a cable modem setup, all it uses is a gateway and proxy setting in Windows. Linux recognized my nic card fine. I set the proxies in Netscape but how do I set this up in networking config for linux. I am really interested in learning linux, I work tech support for Windows and tired of seeing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can either use 'linuxconf', or

1. Make sure NIC module is loaded by using 'lsmod'
2. Configure NIC (IP address) by using 'ifconfig'
3. Configure routing (gateway) by using 'route'
They all have man pages, read them.
