from redhat 9.0 to slackware 9.1


Today i switched distros... i went from redhat to slackware. Red hat is fun... lots of tools setups wizards. I'm ashamed to say that I could not even config my eth on this distro. It has a different directory structure. Please help me with the following:
1. How can I set up my network /etc/sysconfig/ doesn't exist like in RH
2. How can I reset my X config to default... i made the fault to change my video card to an incopatible one and now it's not starting...
3. more to come...
Thank you!

1: Take a look at /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

2: try xf86config or edit /etc/X11/XF86Config(-4) by hand

3. Edit your XF86Config(-4) file and under the Mouse section, change the protocol from "PS/2" to "IMPS/2" -- it should work like a charm.

4. As for the AC97 -- I'm not sure, I'm running the same card (not on slack, mind you) and it works fine for me. You'll probably want to lsmod and see if the modules have been loading correctly. If not, you may want to try and launch them.

you need to configure Alsa drivers, slackware 9.1 uses Alsa by default, not OSS, try alsaconf or edit /etc/modules.conf by hand (check out ALSA website http://alsa.sf.net), Slackware should already have all alsa modules compiled.

wow... thanks a lot... you're great. All you said worked for me!
5. I have a radeon9200 and it doesn't have support for linux... on RH i used the ChipID trick(i used a 8500 driver and modified to use the 9200 chip)... how can I make this work for slack ? My eyes are killing me(low refresh rate).

Easier way in Slack is to use netconfig instead of editing rc.inet1 manually.
