setting up ethernet connection

Running Slackware 9.0, using an NForce 2 mobo with on board ethernet, cannot bring up ethernet. eth0 shows up with ifconfig, but whenever you try to use dhclient on eth0 it says it cant find it. I downloaded NVidia's drivers for the ethernet port and installed correctly as far as i know. I'm in windows right now, but i think it unpacked the driver nvnet.o in the lib/modules/2.4.20 directory. the driver package doesnt have any troubleshooting steps just how to install. dont know what else to do. any help would be appreciated.

[root@linuxbox]#ifconfig eth0 down
[root@linuxbox]#ifconfig eth0 up
