Slackware recognizes eth0 but won't use satellite modem

Machine: Slackware 9.1 booting from floppy on second partition of WinXP Pro machine. Internet connection is via satellite modem through PCI Realtek ethernet card. Thanks to jtshaw, the machine does recognize eth0 now, however, the machine won't connect to internet.

Can anyone suggest a troubleshooting procedure and/or next step(s)?

Well, what exactly is your eth card is attached to? Is it a router (can you ping it?) or a modem. In the latter case you'll need a driver. A good stating point would be googling for your modem model and "linux"
