networking help with suse 9.1 personal
recently i installed suse 9.1 personal on one of my computers. i have been running it with windows xp and windows internet connection sharing. it has a intel motherboard (i dont know which one) a 1.8 ghz intel pentium 4 processor and 384mb of 266mhz ddr ram. the first networking card is built into the motherboard and both linux and windows identifies it as an intel pro/100 ve network connection. the second card was a generic card i bought at a compusa and is identified by both operating systems as a via rhine III fast ethernet adapter. when i start suse it says something about networking failing. when i log in and try my internet and network niether works. i have a d-link 10/100 fast ethernet switch. i am bad at networking and linux so i dont really know what i'm doing.
