Well, each distro has their network config files in a slightly different
place, but pretty much all of them basically just require that two
1) You set your network card to be "brought up" (as in activated/online,
whatever) on boot using DHCP
2) That you have a DHCP client installed that it knows about and have it
3) (okay I lied about there being 2 things) Make sure your network
card's kernel module gets loaded on boot.
So, if you tell us what distribution of Linux, we (I or some others) can
probably point you to the appropriate places for each of these 2^H3
