Configuring eth0

I just installed slack on my machine (dual-boot Toshiba M35) It has a fresh install with all of the goodies you can find on the CD. Now, I didnt have access to a high speed connection while i was installing it so now I need to configure my eth0 so i can get online. It's a built-in e100 ethernet. How do I find the right module to load and how can I make that automatic on startup? Also, is there anything special i need to do to make it broadcast for DHCP?

Update: I got the ethernet card up but I can't broadcast for DHCP.

Try running netconfig from a terminal, choose dhcp.
