Slackware connection


HI all,
just installed Slackware 9.0 and seems pretty cool till the moment but having problems connecting it to the internet, i have my cablemodem connected directly to my network card. Already did the networkconfiguration with the NETCONFIG command and run /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 and inet2 but still doesn't work
Any Slackware users out there know whats wrong?

thanks in advanced

sure i can, what more information do you need?

i have two harddrives, in the first one i have windowsXP and Redhat 9.0 using the grub bootloader and in the second i have Slcakware, i boot Slackware from a floppy, don't know how to add it to the grub bootloader yet, i know is in /etc/grub.conf but don;t know how to configure it for Slackware to boot from there, thats another question.. anyway my other two O.S connect perfectly to the internet and Slackware doesn't and don't know why, i already run the netconfig command and configure it, my network card was detected, also run the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 and the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet2 command

Is dhcpd running? Most cable modem IP addresses are assigned via DHCP and if it isn't grabbing an address you have no net.

And the problem isn't with your bootloader, so don't worry about that information.

i know i have to add this to /etc/grub.conf but is incomplete

this is the one for redhat
title Redhat
root (hd0,4)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-18.9 ro root=LABEL=/ hda=ide-scsi
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-18.9.img

so slackware must be:

title Slackware
root (hd1.4)

I know squat all about GRUB. I'm a LILO man.

http://www.gnu.org/manual/grub-0.90/.../grub_toc.html

Try this page. It might have some helpful information. I dunno. I like LILO.

Good luck.
