Simple Networking Question

I've been trying to connect my Windows/Linux Box to either the internet or 
my college network, and I have been failing miserably (it has been a while). 
  The problem I think is the fact that my modem and network cards are 
Windows PnP.  I have Windows 98 and Red Hat Linux 6.2 on the same machine.  
I just pulled out my internal modem from my machine and reinstalled a 3Com 
EtherLink 509B-TPO PnP (standard ISA network card) -since I will be 
returning to school.  Of course the network card is recognized by Windows, 
but once again, it is not recognized by Linux.  I tried using the line "cat 
/proc/interrupts" and my network card is not listed.  I am desperate for any 
help or answers.  Anything would be greatly appreciated.  Need net access on 
Linux!!  Thanks!
