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.

So, after the booting of Klax the system works directly; if I run netconfig, with the static IP the system works, with DHCP it doesn't. For your question, with respect to windows, I try to search DHCP hostname without results.
yeah, that also means there's no need for the hostname specifier...
i don't know man, if i were you i'd re-install slackware cuz something's probably broken in the install somewhere... if you choose to do this, make sure you do a full-install of the series you want, instead of cherry-picking packages...
also, forget the netconfig utility and just edit your rc.inet1.conf by hand...
-It seems you confirmed the 8139too driver is working.
-You can manually configure the card for a static IP address and it works
-During boot DHCPCD runs and fails to get an address for the card.
-You ran a live CD (KLAX) and the Dhcp client works.
Does anybody know what dhcp client Klax uses? Are they using dhcpcd or pump? I think it's the first one since Klax is based on Slax and Slax is based on slackware.
I downloaded the Hamlet router manual and it seems to use a pretty straight forward dhcp server. So where is the problem happening here? The card works, the server works, a static ip works, a live cd properly connects. Manually running dhcpcd does not work.
Please keep us informed on how the reinstall goes, I'm curious on this one.
win32sux: I reinstall slack (the forth time), without run netconfig and nothing works; I go to rc.inet1.conf, I put "yes" on "USE_DHCP" , I reboot and nothing works. I return to rc.inet1.conf, I put the IPs and it doesn't works.
N.B.:I always choose full install, without "cherry-picking".
kriton12: when I choose "static IP" on netconfig on Slack 10.2, it doesn't works.
When I boot Klax live-CD the system works; if I run netconfig: with "static IP" it works, with "DHCP" it doesn't works.
1) It is possible that the program DHCP or DHCPCD is broken (the CD come from a magazine)? or a conflict between DHCP and DHCPCD?
2) I don't know wich program are used by Klax. When I boot on Klax, the file rc.inet1.conf reported ="" on IPADDR, NETMASK, USE_DHCP.
3) with "pkgtool" I see that on Klax dhcpcd is installed, but dhcp is not
4) so, I return on Slack 10.2, I remove dhcp, I reboot but it doesn't works.
I burned the official ISO and installed the full packages
I choose static IP or DHCP on netconfig
I wrote directly on the file inet1.conf
(I controlled the checksum of the DHCPCD file, it is OK)
but it doesn't works...

@gusgoose_it i have exactly the same problem with my realtech NIC. i'm trying to configure it with slackware 10.2 my one week efforts don't give a result. my network provider uses DHCP, too. i've tried the static ip option and the dhcp. i edited manually the rc.inte1.conf file, but still nothin. i had a suse 9.3 before and everything worked well. so right now i'm quite confused..
so can somebody help me too i'm tired of readin man pages and FAQs
