Question how can i start my network card at boot up


here is my problem

I installed Slackware 10 on my machine and everything was fine. Later on I added network card realtek 8029 to my PC. Slackware doesn't detect it at boot up. So I have to load module ne2k-pci for NIC and then start eth0, configure IP address, etc.... I made a simple script for this.
Is there any way how to do this at booting?
Can slack detect it automatically without reinstalling whole system or do I have to do something with the script?
The script looks like this :

modprobe ne2k-pci
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig inet 192.168.10.1 netmask 255.255.255.0

thanks for help, Mio.

You could add ne2k-pci to your /etc/modules file (kernel modules to be loaded at boot time), and then add an entry into your /etc/network/interfaces line, such as
Code:
# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address <insert address>
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network <insert address>
        broadcast <insert address>
        gateway <insert address>
        # dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
        dns-nameservers <insert address>
        dns-search <insert address>
Cheers,

mj
