This was a pre-existing installation (working one). Modem recycling has 
no effect. Switching from Mandrake to Fedora fixed all without messing 
with it more. It looks like there is some kind of DHCP setup bug in 
Mandrake, and without knowing more about how it works for that distro, 
it just isn't worth it to him to stick to Mandrake.
