Internet is fubared?


Okay, well after replaceing the cdrom in my oldest computer (P2 Dell somthing 400mhz maybe?) so it could run slackware 9.1 discs since it was a little broken, I install using upgradepkg to 2.4.26, and now my internet doesnt work? No idea what's wrong, ran netconfig yada yada, i'm guessing it's my 10/100 ethernet card? Any ideas? Thanks.

What are the results of a "ifconfig" command? Can you ping anything? Are you on a network or are you connected straight to your internet connection (DSL router or the like)
