D-link Cable internet Not working

I have a D-Link DE-220P PnP ISA Card , and i have tried netconfig serveral times but never manage to get the internet up and running. i've never tried pppconfig because i read thats its only for dial-up. I think it's because i dont have a driver for it or something.... I dont really have a clue. Can anybody please help? Note: I'm running linux Slackware version 9.1.

I've gotten plenty of cable modem internet connections to work with external cable modems, but I've never tried internal ones. You might want to search the google for drivers and move this question to the Hardware forum.

Is the network card detected when Slack boots? There should be a line that has eth0 and then the name of your card and some other info. Then a little farther down DHCPD will try and pick up an ip address. You can look through /var/log/messages for clues.
