No network interface


On a fresh install of slack 10.2 on a Dell Dimension e310 (using sata.i), the only thing that doesn't work is the network interface. ifconfig says the only one that exists is lo. The network card is intergrated into the motherboard.
Booting into Knoppix 3.9, the network works fine. Is there any way to find out what module knoppix is using for the card so that I can verify that it's including with my slackware kernel? I've ran lsmod in knoppix, but nothing is jumping out as the network interface. Here is the output:

Does lspci indicate a network card detected?
Perhaps you have to recompile the kernel - it might be some unusual driver.

From the above it seems that you use e100 (intel pro/100) module

How do you know your network interface is not working ? It may just be in down state.
Check for available interfaces with
Code:
ifconfig -a
command.
