I'm having problems installing my nic

I just installed Slackware 9.0. Before that I had Mandrake 9.0 and it automatically recognized my nic plus it had that harddrake utility that I could use to get it. With slack i think I have command line it and i'm that proficient yet. The device is a d-link dl10038. If anyone knows of an automatic tool let me know, if not could you guys help me configure my nic. I have a cable modem and I'm trying to get my nic working so I can get online

well there is 'netconfig.' it might do the trick but sometimes theres more work to be done. Is it enabled in the kernel, if so is it just that the module cant be loaded/found? run 'make menuconfig' in the usr/src/linux directory adn check in the network device section to see if its enabled. also do u get any module errors once u enter runlevel 3(youll know your in 3 cause it wills ay 'going multi user')?one thing to keep in mind about slackware is that there is a whiole bunch of HOWTOs in /usr/doc. use them. their there to help you. and they will if u read them.

i don't have a /usr/src/linux directory. all that is under src is /usr/src/rpm

when i did netconfig it probed for my card and found something but it still isn't recognizing it in the system
