Run the command system-config-network to enter your network settings. In KDE, you can right click in the window to get a mini-menu to execute run command. There's probably something similar in Gnome or you can look in the menus for the command.

Thanks for that particular bit of information. You might've guessed I'm new to Linux. The amarok problem still persists. I've downloaded the repository from amarok for fedora. Then I tried installing the update and it says there are missing dependencies. i.e libgpod.so.1, libpq.so.4, libmtp.so.4. How do I fix this?

Well, libpq.so comes from postgresql-devel, libmtp.so comes from libmtp-devel, and libgpod.so comes from libgpod-devel. Not sure about what specific versions come with the Fedora version you are installing, but I'd start there. If you have later versions of the libraries, you can search for an older RPM or a newer amarok distributions or just make a symbolic link to the later version of the library and see if it works ok.
