first of, i am a certified newbie to linux and this is my problem (sounds like AA).
i have slackware 10.0 installed and used the CD-ROM kernel when I was prompted in the setup. I have a KV8Pro motherboard with an onboard VT6122 10/100/1000 Mb PCI Ethernet Controller.
i read the previous thread and found that i can reconfigure the network using NETCONFIG. I am using a router that is also a DHCP. When I ran NETCONFIG, these are my answers:
3. setup ip=DHCP
4. set DHCP hostname= (left blank)
This is the IFCONFIG output
