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.

You will not get anywhere until you have a driver loaded for your network card (as others have said).
When we know what your Ethernet controller is, we can proceed!
It will also help if you get your keyboard set up correctly.
When you installed slackware there was a keyboard setup routine where you test that the keys work properly -
so you can put your slack disk1 back in and run setup (keymap) again. (Or, if the keyboard problem is only in X, then you need to correct the /etc/X11/xorg.conf in the Inputdevices section. You need to specify the country and number of buttons on your keyboard) You can also run xorgconfig to do this for you, but you need to know your computer specs before you start this (and make a copy of your original xorg.config file in case it goes wrong).
While you are doing all this, find out what the ip address of your router is. 192.168.0.1 is a common one. It will be in the instruction booklet -or the cd. Then we can help you get networking going.
We want to help our friends. When we ask for some output...post the output. When we ask for the hardware...post the hardware. When we ask a question...please answer as best YOU can. Thank YOU for YOUR time. I am where I am because YOU cared.
