Cannot connect to internet,(DSL) eth0 not found


Hi...
Alright, I just installed slackware. I set up the network during install, then I go to connect to the internet and I have no connection.
I try
Code:
ifconfig eth0 up
dhclient
But eth0 is not found.
Tried setting it up again with netconfig and then through pkgtool, nothing. Tried reinstalling, and nothing.
I'm going to compile a new kernel to see if that helps, but before I do I have a question: How do I find out what type(tty1 etc) of modem mine is?(Qwest Actiontec DSL modem w/wireless gateway)
And is there anything else I should know before I do it?
(179gb windows partition, 20gb linux, 1gb swap)

What kind of ethernet card do you have.
lspci should tell you;
then you need to load the module for it
modprobe <module>
then I do a ifconfig and or ifconfig -a
to see the interface then
dhcpcd ethx

I did that, but how would I find the module from it?
It gives me a list of things such as my gpu, ethernet controller, etc.
But I have no idea how to get what the module is from that. Sorry, just really want to get the internet set up.

Do a search on google for the make and see if one of the links mentions the needed module. Also posint the output here can help use to show you what to look for. Also using the HCL section here might help you as well. It is one of the tabs above to the HCL (hardware compatiable list).

Little more info.
Is there a router between modem and machine?
or directly connected to the modem?
lspci info?

Lets go from here.

It's just my computer and the modem. Hold on, i'll get on linux and get the output.
Alright, sorry I took so long. Tried to write the document to a cd, and couldn't figure it out..
Anyway, I wrote down the Ethernet part of it:

00.0a.0 Ethernet Controller:Marvell Technologies Group Ltd. 88E8001 Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev13)

(The controller is onboard)The modem wasn't listed on there.
But, it was listed on the HCL.

Look at the output of the lsmod command to see if your ethernet module is loading.
The module name is sk98lin. If the module is not found look at the links in this thread:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...gabit+ethernet

If connecting via ethernet then no other module is required other then ethernet adapter. This modem is also a router.

Now if I could just figure out how to install it. Is it an entire new kernel and I need to compile a new one?(I can't tell, but the others were also .tar.bz2.
EDIT: Yahoo! Got it. Thanks all of you, really helped out.
Now wish my mouse scroll wheel would work. One step at a time...
