Huh? I don't understand the question. The syntax is not "slackware" but like every gnu program wants to be, so you have to read HOW-TO's or (for example) man sshd. Allthough the layout of files in folders may be different than the HOW-TO's.

pick an editor (mcedit / pico / vi) and edit the files. Easy: pico /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf (I don't have irc.inet.conf file, you missed the "1"?) or Hard: vi /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

Or better if you are afraid: netconfig (but this is not "manually")

i am trying to set up a NOS where my server (slackware based) will control client Pcs.I guess i have to set up a proxy NAT and samba (coz my client Pc is Windows based)I reading through materials but some things are going over my head.

Do you know or have any documention where it gives steps to set up a this using slackware?

Hi,
Welcome to Slackware!

As for a good Server setup guide. You could also look at my sig for some good online reference. A search of LQ will also get you some good server reference.

Here is an example of how you can make one static
and one dynamic ethX.

And here is the portion of the official manual that
can help you better.
