Fresh Slack install, no internet!!!

Ok, heres the deal.

Fresh Slack 10.2 Install **Note: Have done previous slack 10.2 installs on same computer

I plugged in my ethernet, run dhcpcd, get nothing! No link lights, no nothing.
Try ifconfig eth0 up (no errors whatsoever), and ifconfig eth0 and I also get nothing
tried netconfig name: DHCP IP address, DNS. And still NOTHING!!

I have done a previous installation in Slack 10.2 and the internet worked fine with the bare.i kernel (default from the CD)

Things I havent done - recompiled my kernel... but I shouldnt have to, because it has worked on previous occasions.

Any ideas off the top of your head? Thanks

Ok, sorry about this post... apparently all my slack needed was a nice 3 reboots after install in order for the net to work. Sorry for the inconvenience for those reading this. Problem solved (I am writing this from my linux box)
