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.

In my router I had to or could give a "Domain Name". That seems to be filled in here automatically. I don't know if it makes any difference at all. BTW, did you try to call google.com like I suggested, with the IP (188.8.131.52)?
Oh, by the way, I wanted to thank you for all the help Do you want to learn piano? (i'm not sure if you know how to play already or not) I teach a bunch of piano lessons for beginners on youtube, you can find it at http://www.youtube.com/pianolounge and yea, I'll give you AS MUCH SUPPORT as you want!!!! i OWE you alot for all this. You're very nice, and even though the problem still hasn't been fixed, you're awesome ^_^ If you've got anymore idea's or people you know, we can see what happens...but yea i don't know? what's left?....if i can't connect to the internet, there's not much of a point in having slackware...i'll just have to go back to windows...
Sorry, no. I am quite sure that's more a computer-router problem now at this point than a pure Slackware problem. I would first look in the handbook of your router.
Else do a new post in the Slackware forum. Post what you did (eth0 up and running, router and local network accessable, static DHCP, post your resolv.conf, the first few lines of rc.inet1.conf and maybe your routers name (model). Sorry but no clue left, but I still think you're near now
Anyway. No matter if you get it working with Slackware, I suggest you get some basic Linux knowledge. The revised Slackbook (http://slackbook.org/) and the RUTE tutorial (http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz) are very good starting points. You will need at least some of that stuff sooner or later.
Good luck with that lypur

actually, i've got the external disk mounted, and i can access the files in root, i copied them over to my desktop, the problem is, it locks me out of the files when i'm logged in as "andrew"
any ideas? (i'm guessing this stuff should be alot simpler)
then the only other thing i need to configure is my resolution (by the way i'm typing this on my linux slackware system)

The magic word is probably "umask". You want to set it to "0000" (four times null) in /etc/fstab or manually when you mount it. If you dare it, you could try also options like gid and uid, but keep some of the fun for later. A search here on LQ.net (something like "ntfs umask permissions" for example) will show you many posts about that and how to apply it. Time to make baby steps on your own

There are many posts about that, really. If you check what I wrote about that (I did I think) you could copy/paste it into /etc/X11/xorg.conf. But again, many many posts wait to be found by you. LQ has an excellent search function. You can restrict it to just search in the Slackware (or any other) forum if you think a question is distro specific. Or search only title or title and post ... "xorg resolution" should make this secret no longer a secret for you.
Not that I could not help you, but that's part of the Linux show. Reading posts and man pages is a very important skill here and on LQ.net you can find most information you need without even asking it yourself because it's already answered. Now that your browser works (crossing fingers) that's an important lesson. If you can't solve it after reading, post here in Newbie oder Slackware section.

Well, I think you earned that for beating the problem down in the end Happy slacking
