    I finally installed Slackware 10.1 but now I have a problem


    Can anybody could please help me to connect to the internet, I have no idea how to setup my network on slackware, for other distros I always used DCHP so I could automatically connect to the internet.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Try one of the following to configure your interface via DHCP:

    dhclient eth0
    dhcpcd eth0
    pump eth0
    One of these commands should be present on your system.

    You need to run netconfig. Answer the questions(hostname, domaine and dhcp) and accept.
    netconfig should have run during the post-install configuration. It is possible to by-pass it by mistake. Just boot, log in as root and run it again.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

    dhcpcd -d eth1
    that should give you a lease on eth1 from dhcp, the default is usually eth0 which is probally why you're having problems
