In RedHat (and Windows), try setting network connection to ask for an  
ip address via dhcp - assuming The Router (of unspecified lineage)  
handles dhcp - setup should be little more than plug in and go.

for Redhat docs try  
in windows it's be an option in the network control panel to  
automatically discover setting... (don't have an XP box to try).

Once the machines are in the same subnet as the router (192.168.....  
etc) you should be able to connect to router in any web browser..

Good luck - but with dhcp should be e c.
