Question Configuring slackware behind a router

Hello, I've been trying to find a tutorial of how to configure slackware behind a firewall (I'm a total beginner at configuring slackware).

Only things i've done in linux is to use irssi, and use pine and pico

Anyway, I want slackware configured so it gets an ip from the router when it's plugged on (as the "Get ip automatically"-function in Windows, if that's possible)

I would like someone to describe for me how to do, or at least give me directions and/or a tutorial.

the dhcp daemon should do that automatically.

my slackware detects the IP from the router without any special settings.

check that ur box is configured for DHCP and that /etc/rc.d/rc.inet is run

Same here DHCP does it automagically. It spoils you after having to fight dial ups.
