How to auto internet with wicd in slackware current on USB?


so, I installed wicd 1.7.0 and unlike in Debian Live, *buntu,etc
I have no auto internet at boot if I run my slack-current USB on a different pc

if I boot on computer I was running on when I installed it (eth0)
I have auto-connect at boot

If I boot on another pc I have (eth1)
I have to manually setup wicd all over again?!

I have edited /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and put "yes" for eth0-eth3
and keepresolv.conf(is that wrong?)

What am I doing wrong?

Have you tried it the other way, setting up wicd
on that other machine first?

Do both nets use the same type of security(wep,wpa)?

Would editing your /etc/dhclient.conf help?

/etc/network the ifup and ifdown scripts?

wicd might be trying but hang on those.
