Hmm, I think that there's a package DHCP on your Slackware CD. (in the /n directory) You can install that and like acid_kewpie suggested find a DHCP-howto on www.tldp.org

uhh i get the an error, says device does not exist when i try to add 255.255.255.255 as a host or whatever to eth1 (the command was add host 255.255.255.255 dev eth1) said the device did not exist or something along those lines (not sitting in front of my machine right now) adding to my hosts file doesnt seem to help either 8( ifconfig eth1 brings up all the proper info though
