Toshiba Satellite A135 - Ethernet Problem

Yesterday I bought Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527, I wanted to put slackware on it, but for some reason, the standard kernel couldn't write anything to the hard drive, after I figured that out and finally booted my new installation up, ethernet hard wasn't found.

When I do ifconfig, only lo comes up, I tried ifconfig eth0 up, but I got no such device. And there's two ethernet cards listed in lspci:

Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. Unknown device 001c (rev 01)
Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E PCI Express Fast Ethernet Controller (rev 01)
I think the first one is just the wireless card.

The kernel is Any suggestions please? Thank you!

Atheros chipset uses madwifi driver. I don't use slack anymore so don't have specifics but that's the slackpack I'd do an search for.
