Standard LAN access to and from what?
What exactly are you trying to do? What kind of Mac?
Is it running OS 9 or X?
Are you trying to share the internet or file share?
With an PC or another Mac?

Plug in the an ethernet cable.  Boom, your done.

Really, what do you need to set up?  Getting on a network depends on the state of that network.  For the most part, you just need to plug it in, from the ethernet port on your mac to a port on some switch somewhere.  The mac will default to using DHCP for addressing.

Any other details?

There is also an Apple Program in the Application Folder called Internet Connect which may make it easier to see what your connections are doing.
