    and are we talking modem not working or NIC not working? The thing you listed is an ethernet card, not a modem...and there is ample support for that nic in slackware as is.

    I screwed up. I mistyped my NIC, it's RTL8139. (I was tired).

    I'm not sure to understand here: u said u're using a driver from windows to get you nic work?
    No, the module for my NIC was already installed in the Kernel.

    I'll get the rest of that information in a second, I gotta boot into slack to get it.

    partitioning

    I use PM8 for creating root and swap ext3 partions with no problems. Easier than cfdisk. I too use one cd for xp and another for 3 diff. linuxes. Happy slacking.
    LQ SW forum has "This is how I do it all";linuxpackages forum has several install guides and an online slackware book. Bitdefenders web page also goes thru detailed SW install.
    U can also dl free SimplyLinux book by jzblack wc covers SW10 install and config as well as many other os install/configs.
    SW is easy to install once u have some reading/references under ur belt. And have HW list available. I found it eaier than Debian,Fedora and Arch. Keep Slacking. U will learn al ot and have fun.
