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.

If you want something else to claim eth0 then make sure that the modules for that device run first. If your wireless card is claiming eth0 when you want your network card to be eth0 instead, then change the order in which the modules for both are loaded. If you don't know how, then you could try utilities like nameif but they are not installed with Slackware by default (at least I don't think so).
well i already have an eth0 its my network card. Ill be using it and then try to fire up my internal card and my network card will die and my wireless card will take eth0 and wont work. also its supossed to be wlan0
Try adding ipw2200 to /etc/hotplug/blacklist, then you can either load the driver manually at some point, or add it to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules to load later in the boot. If it loads last, it will not be eth0
