    Hi, i am new in Slackware (i came from debian/ubuntu) i just install slack 11 in my pc, btw the installer is the best one i ever see .
    My problem is my network configuration, wont work

    #ifconfig -a #should show new IP

    #route add default gw #your gateway IP
    #route -n #should show a gw for eth0
    ifconfig -a
