If you intend to use to your datalink fastethernet switch through a network interface card, you can proceed as follow.

Set your card (network, lan) to work with dhcp instead of using a static address, and restart your system.
Open the Mandriva Control Center (root required).
Go to the Network & Internet
Configure the network using the "LAN " option and the "DHCP" option
The DHCP option will try to find you an IP address from the server. (In this case, the datalink fastethernet switch will act as a server)
