[slackware] how can I find out where my ethernet port is?

Ok, I dont know where my ethernet port is... well the number anyways... I know its on my motherboard though...
Can you find out where the ethernet port is when you boot up your computer? (where it has the grid layout of system specs, under where it says irq(?))
Thanks for helping the n00b in advance! :P

Type in ifconfig into a terminal (you may need to use "su" to become root to use it). Normally it will be 'eth0'.
