[PLUG] Mandrake Networking: pppoe & smb

I recently installed Mandrake in a partition on my [smooth functioning, but elderly] red hat machine. Everything good (after I fixed the way it hosed my existing grub configuration after promising not to). Even KDE 3.1 runs smoother and faster than KDE 3.0 on the red hat 7.3 install. But...

I can't get the Mandrake networking configurator, DrakConnect, nor trusty linuxconf, to set up the Ethernet cards so that I can connect to DSL or my Samba network. Is there a tool or trick that anyone can suggest?
