You have a dsl connection with no router...you swapped this NEW computer in? (is it new)
The old computer works.
You are getting an automatic IP.
I wonder, and suspect, if your ISP authorizes IP addresses based on MAC addresses (hardware)
Who set up your DSL?

Plug in the mac, or other PC, boot, and get a dynamic address.
Start > run, cmd
write down the ip address and subnet, gateway and dns servers
Shut down, hook up your PC, start, right click on Network Place, properties, choose the local area connection, right click, choose properties, choose Internet Protocal, choose PROPERTIES button
choose the USE THE FOLLOWING IP NUMBERS
insert IP, subhet and gateway
choose USE THE FOLLOWING NAME SERVERS

Are you sure that you have the correct driver for your LAN card? Did the computer find the driver during XP installation or did you install it latter?
If after checking these points you still have connectivity problems I would suspect the LAN card. First, I would try to move it to another pci slot. If that doesn't help I would try to replace it temporarily with another card.
