How do I activate Networking; at initial install I chose no networking?

When I installed Linux, I chose no networking as an option.  Now I need to activate the ethernet card and IP addresses.  What files/utility can help me in this regard.

Thanks.

Run netcfg and there will be an interface for adding devices, configuring them, and setting up domain, gateway, etc.

For more info and step by step setup refer to

This will guide you straight through setting up your network interface.
