OK, I think I am close, but I am not sure what the final ingredient is:
I just installed Slack 9.1, and I am trying to configure my network. I have an HP Pavillion Laptop, with a National Semiconductor card, connectied to a router to a cable modem. Slack recognizes my card at boot, reading, eth0: link up. When I run lsmod, the card is on there, and when I run ifconfig eth0 up, it lists my eth0 setup BUT, it doesn't appear to be assigning me an ip address. Here is the output of ifconfig eth0:
I have tried to run netconfig and dhcpcd, but it hasn't helped. When I run ifconfig eth0 up, my eth0 gets displayed, but then if I run dhcpcd eth0, afterwards, ifconfig then displays only LO again. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!! Also, when I boot, it brings up the eth0 interface and says link up: remaining active for wake-on LAN.
