Hi, When you say "it no worky worky" do you mean you weren't able to immediately connect to your network after installation? Have you done anything to configure it? I'm not being a smart ass, I just need more information in order to help you. (In case you haven't) try running "Mandrake Control Center" from your X menus (KDE, GNOME, or any WM) and click on "networking." This allows you to painlessly set up networking. If you didn't install X and want to do it the intimate way (no such thing as "the hard way" in linux) let me know and I'll tell you the way to do it by hacking config files and running ifconfig and route. Good luck and sorry to hear it didn't work for you. let us know if you get it figured out.
