    to find out your NIC type: lspci as root

    first try as root though:
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 up
    dhcpcd eth0
    then try pinging
    ping -c2 google.com
    if it doesn't work you can add support in your kernel.
    Code:
    cd /usr/src/linux
    #make menuconfig
    find your nic somewhere in device drivers probably check it then compile your kernel
    #make && make modules_install
    then copy over to grub or lilo
    if grub
    cp /arch/i386/boot/bzimage /boot/"nameofyourkernel in grub.conf"
    cp System.map /boot/System.map[/quote]
    you could also try something like genkernel
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    Genkernel is for Gentoo, he's using Slack .

    I just figured slack would have something similar to genkernel which automates the process of modifying the kernel. I've never used slack though so its good to know--in fact I didn't know that genkernel was only for gentoo but I guess it makes since given the "gen" of genkernel.

    Well I recently did a stage 3 install of Gentoo. I must say, Gentoo has some tools to automate several things, and it's not that difficult to setup (Slack isn't either but there's no hand book that takes your hand like Gentoo's one does...).
