Does the hardware show up in lspci -v with Kernel driver and Modules? Should be e1000 or e1000e if I remember correctly.

You might also try 'ifconfig eth0 up' from elevated console and then 'ifconfig' and see if the eth0 shows up. (this is assuming that 'ifconfig' only gives "lo" and not "eth0")

Unfortunately I don't use slackware and am not sure of any special/default configurations.

Hope this gets you started.
