Well, re-installing may be more trouble than simply reconfiguring. For Mandrake systems, I think the command is netconfig. If that doesn't work, try setup.

Keep in mind now that since you're on broadband, you owe it to yourself, and your net-neighbors to read this first:

For more help, there's lots of help here:

Have a fun and safe Linux+Broadband experiance!
