Default Problem connecting to internet

I recently just had an HP Pavilion 9680C given to me. Its got a P3 and about a 38Gb HDD and window 98. I was trying to connect to the internet with it today to the exact same jack im using right now, and it wouldn't work. I ran the same cord i used for another computer (which connect to the net perfectly fine) over here to this room (different room than where actual PC is) and plugged it in. I opened up IE and it couldn't find the page.

Any suggestions??

Yeah I'm pretty sure its ethernet (it says 10/100 next to it).

And yeah the drivers must be installed because the previous owner said they used it on the internet...

Humm that's weird. Have you got a copy of Windows XP. I'd swap that out first of all. Then actually use it.
