I'm running Slackware 10.1 (2.4.29) on an IBM T21. I usually connect to my home network via a wireless card. I decided to plug in an ethernet cable into the back and I don't know what to do from there.
ifconfig just gives me the loopback network.
lo Link encap:Local Network
innet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0

when i connect wirelessly it is on eth0.
