Is Bill or Steve to blame?

I've spent the weekend playing with my new Intel iMac, and I finally got Windows XP installed only to run into a brick wall with internet connectivity...

I almost used this question on how to get past the apparent problem with Leopard's version of Boot Camp in installing XP, but I found a solution after half a day.
But I digress. I have a DSL connection and use a username and password in the XP connection wizard. When I hit the "connect" button, it'll immediately state something like "there is no connection with your ISP". I've never seen this immediate refusal to even dial.
My ISP is fine, though, as I'm typing this on the Leopard side of my iMac. (There is a secondary, though seemingly unrelated issue with the internet connection with Leopard, though: when I first boot up, I can't connect to the internet for a good 3 minutes, and then it suddenly connects).
I know that internet connection issues are legion and this could be any number of things, but could someone at least point me in the right direction to remedy this? I don't even know which OS is to blame, or where I can find the solution? Anyone ever run into the same thing?
