using netconfig with Slackware 13.37 to connect to the internet
So I successfully installed the latest version of slackware, but much to my chagrin it does not auto-connect itself to the internet like my crunchbang does. I read a little from ch.5 of the slackware book, so I know what command to run, but I don't know what to do after running netconfig. I'm using crunchbang right now to get access to the forums, so I know my internet works with this computer. I tried to set up a DHCP connection, but that didn't do anything. So I have two questions:
1.) How do I tell if I have a Static-IP, DHCP, or Loopback connection?
2.) Can I use Crunchbang to get the information I will need, since it connects to the internet like a pro?
Thanks for the help. I'm looking forward to learning how to do this so I don't have to ask anymore.
Edit: Crunchbang is a "a lightweight Debian based Linux distribution," according to wikipedia.
