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'd normally just set the interface to DHCP. personally i'd just look at /etc/syscnofig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and check that there's a BOOTPROTO=dhcp line there. that should be all you need, assuming your network is loading on boot and you set that interface to load at that time (ONBOOT=yes)
Well, I got DHCP working (didn't install network software first go round so reinstalled). Everything is working fine except a few things. Slackware is awsome and I'm having a great time. One problem. I have a Logitech Optical Mouse with Web Wheel, but don't know how to get the wheel to work. Any ideas?

c'mon acid, that /etc/sysconfig directory doesn't exist in Slack...
