Ubuntu not recognizing my network card.

Just got a new 1500 dollar Dell Dimension 9100 (don't laugh, it's all my dad will agree to buy), and after toying with the BIOS for a few hours (they make it impossible to install Linux), I finally get my Ubuntu 5.10 installed. Back on my Inspiron 7000 laptop, I never had any problems with Ubuntu. Now, when I go into the Network settings on my desktop, it only recognizes the dial-up modem, and not my ethernet card. I have absolutely no clue how to (if I even can) set it up manually, and the physical withdrawal from teh Internets is killing me. I can't sleep, I'm not eating...

Hell, right now I'm on my stepmom's laptop. I had to sneak onto it while she's at work and my dad's up in LA. :rolleyes:

WILL SUCKY 4 HELP.

Google it, someone probably already had this problem and fixed it.

James, why reply with that kind of useless bullshit? Don't you think I haven't already tried Google?

You want to know why? Well, when I am confronted with something that I don't know....I google it! Douchebag, look harder, noone gives a shit about Ubuntu.
