problems at start up, dhcp...

Anyways, i'm trying to setup a router/firewall/server out of an old P100 48MB RAM 800 Mb hard drive. (no X). I have slackware 9.1 installed and upgraded/built to kernel 2.6.4 (i have experience with gentoo but none with slackware).

I initially setup up my slackware + kernel compile on vmware on my faster machine (2ghz), when i switched the slackware 9.1 ready hd to the P100, all went ok....excpet for this

i've already tried netconfig and setting to recieve from dhcp...but it's not working...

during boot time i get this error:

INIT: Entering runlevel 3 
Going multiuser . . .

dhcpcd[61]: broadcasting DHCP_REQUEST for

dhcpcd[61]: timed out waiting for DHCP_ ACK response

dhcpcd[61]: boradcasting DHCP_DISCOVER

dhcpcd[61]: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP server response

i did not setup my slackware machine to request address do i get eth0 or eth1 to get IP from dhcp?

I know for sure that my dhcp server (win2k ICS) is working..

ps: i have a experience with gentoo but none with slackware...this is my first shot at this distro

You can manually edit the file /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf. Here is a portion of mine:
# Config informaiton for eth0

# Config informaiton for eth1
