Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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??
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
