If you want any help, you'll need to at least post what network card you have, and preferably the output of 'lspci'.

Sure....

Well my problem was that my Kernel was not installed correctly, but since Ive got it installed proper and working great now.

What my problem was is this.
Installed kernel huge32.i which loads Kernel 2.6.x.x during the install, but I dident install the remaing files after the install, I installed the remaining files for Kernel 2.6.x.x then BLING BLING, everything is workin, basicly when you just load huge32.i it installes the kernel, but not the files the kernel needs to boot, its still loading kernel 2.4.x.x, I guess slackware does this by default, but after I installed the drivers that slackware 11 CD provided, put the drivers in /boot and to where they are supposed to be located, then opend up my LILO.conf and added the correct parameters to load the kernel, everything is working, w00t w00t

Find out what kinda network card you have and try re-configure the kernel to work

cd /usr/src/linux make menuconfig and try configuring ur kernel.

Run lspci and you should see info about your network card there. No, you don't need all 6 CDs. The last 3 contain the source code for the packages, so if you don't need or want the source, then don't bother with those. I believe CD 3 contains KDE internationalisation packages.

Open a terminal window, type "/sbin/lspci" without the quotes and press enter. To open a terminal window, if you're running KDE you can right-click on the desktop, select "Run Command..." and then enter "xterm" or "konsole". Konsole is also in the K Menu (press the K button, then look at the System menu). Commands/filenames are case-sensitive in Linux, so make sure you use all lowercase when you run lspci. Also, have you made a normal user account, or are you just using root? If the latter, then you really should make a user account for everyday use.

i have not setup a user name as yet but i created the password and use ROOT to log in to slackware, this is another issue that i have been asking on the other linux forums but so far no one has been able to teach me as to how to create the user name.

i also need to find out whether you have to log in with the user name to have access to the internet or you can do it with the root?

again thank you ever so much

To create a user account, run "adduser" in a terminal. It's pretty self-explanatory. You don't need to log in as a regular user to have Internet access, but using a less privileged account means that there's less chance of you breaking something and of course it's more secure.
