Default windows millenium internet question... need quick answer!

I'm helping a friend with his PC and when I was hooking up the internet he said someone told him that you can't use a regular Ethernet cable for the internet (RR) to run and you have to use a USB cable from the modem into a USB port on the back of the PC. I installed Windows 2000 and got rid of Millenium, but is this true? I can run USB instaed of ethernet with 2000 correct? I think his friend is full of it but I just wanted to clarify. Well he didn't have a mouse so I ran home to get one so I'm here for about 20 minutes.
