accessing network - newbie

 hello all!

after using windows for ages, i am planning to switch to linux. my compaq is already a dual boot machine running win98 and debian 3.0.

i am on a lan which also provides me access to the internet. i know my machine's ip address, gateway and dns addresses. i use d-link card for connecting to the lan.

i will like to have access to network resources (printers, etc) and the net. i tried my best but could not do much.

i know the information is far from adequate. but being a newbie, dont know what is required. may be you can ask and i can provide more information?

it is quite sad that i have to get stuck with windows and cant swicth to linux simply because i cant access the net and other resources on lan.

i am appending my dmesg for whatever it is worth. it will be great if i can have simple step by step instructions.
