    Of course it's different, that's one of the main reasons people use Linux...
    If you use the Gnome desktop, there's a network config tool under Applications ---> System Tools ---> Networking.
    It might help to try a more mainstream distro, I've never heard of ThizLinux...

    You should be able to configure your networking via the Kontrol Panel. If you can't figure this out, open up a konsole and su - to root. Then run either dhcpcd eth0, dhclient eth0 or pump eth0. One of these *should* be present on your system.
