Ummm....Calling All Geeks...

i need a little help.

I am trying to turn my old computer into a Linux machine, and am having a little problem. you see, i can't get it to access the internet.

i'm using Mandrake 10.1, and when it does it's start-up thing, everything but interface eth0 is ok, but interface eth0 always fails. even when i tried to change it to eth1.

i tried changing the ethernet card from the previous slot to a new one, tried using dial-up, can't even find how to access dial-up on 10.1.

if anyone has knowledge of this problem, or knows of a better distribution of Linux, like easier for newbies to make work, please let me know in the comments.

thanks, geeks!
