Internet access in linux

I'm unable to access the internet in Linux(Fedora 8).I can access it only in Windows XP.What is the solution for this problem?What changes should I be making to the default settings of the internet on Windows?

Assuming the two systems are installed side-by-side, you don't need to modify anything in Windows for internet connectivity from Fedora. If your router/modem is configured to provide DHCP leases to clients, you can run the dhclient command on your interface, which can be found from the command ifconfig -a. If you are using static addressing, run the command ipconfig /all on Windows, copy the information down pertaining to the adapter that is connected to the internet (IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, DNS servers...), and apply it statically in Fedora.
