well this dosen't look too good, everything listed is a unknown deivce (almost everything)
here are the unknown things:
multimedia audio controller
those are the ones unknown, all from Nvidia. now i have downlaoded a driver, about 7 megs, it says i don't have a kernel source tree or somthing, i just updated my kernel to 188.8.131.52.26, where do i get that source and how do i install it (the driver is for ethernet and audio)
In Mandriva, use the urpmi command to get whatever software you want. e.g. for kernel sources, run this command as root:
Since your ethernet card is not listed in the unknown devices, can you try this commands as root:
modprobe forcedeth <--- loads driver for integrated card ifconfig <---- paste out here what it returns.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

Now i was wondering, first off, do kernels updated with urpmi have to be .rpms? I though so, so we only looked at rpm kernels. And he was able to intall 184.108.40.206.26 sucsessfully, but it did not seem to help. So, the real question is, where can we find a more recent kernel for mandrake 10.1 that will work with urmpi? I looked on the madrake download sight, but i could not find any more recent than 220.127.116.11.26.

An alternative, would be to compile the kernel yourself using a recent snapshot from kernel.org and because you compiled the kernel the source files would be present.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

I have had trouble with MDK 10.1, but even so, if you say that everything during boot is OK except for sound, then that means your eth0 is detected and OK. During installation, Mandrake gives you the chance to setup internet. If you missed it, you can still do it from MCC.
That realtek card should work.
Go to Mandrake Control Center start/menu -. system -> configuration -> config your computer
Select internet and network -> select setup a new connection -> select LAN
follow the wizard. This should get you going. Try to connect NIC directly to DSL.

2. MCC == Mandrake Control Center, similar to YaST in SUSE.
Happy Penguin, if you do wish to compile your own kernel, try this site for some info, if you have more questions, please post back:
