installing intel 945 chipset on slackware 10.1

I'am trying to get networking working. It's onboard. I tryed compiling the kernel with the drivers for intel. I searched google and on the site off intel. No info there. What must i do to install those driver. Or where can i get them? Or what must i do when i compile the kernel. I only installed CLI and no GUI sinds it's webserver.
Thx in advance for any help!

Hi and welcome to LinuxQuestions

I have the same chipset on my laptop and my ethernet is working properly. You just need to enable it from the kernel. It was the broadcom 4400 or something found under 10/100 ethernet options from the Device drivers - Network. Just build it into your kernel and it should work.
