    Internet help


    I am trying to get my Dell Inspirion 3500 with Mandrake 7.0 and Windows 98 to have internet. I'm on a network with a windows server and connect to the network via a 3com megahertz pc card. windows has internet fine but mandrake doesn't. i have tried various combinations of eth0 and a friend told me that i had to use a command and/or file (he was rather vague) called dhclient or dh-client to get a valid ip adress from my server. it doesn't seem to be an executable command and i haven't been able to find any file like this. any suggestions?

    thanks
