Slackware does not recognize network card!!
I am currently trying to do a clean install of Slackware 10.1 and everything goes smooth except that it does not recognize my network card and I cannot connect to the internet. I am currently on a LAN network at school, so I just use the DHCP option. Here are all the relevant specs of my computer:
Dell Inspiron 5150
Network card: Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection
I have tried netconfig numerous times. After I boot the system, I always look under /etc/rc.d to try and find the rc.netdevice, but it is never there. I have manually looked through the rc.modules file to probe for the correct Intel network card, but still slackware cannot detect the card.
I have even tried to detect the network settings before I install the kernel to the hard drive, and it probes through all possible network cards, not finding a match.
I have looked extensively at the slackware webpage and all other relevant forums and informational pages but have not found any help. Does anyone have any ideas??
Thanks so much for any help you can give!
