A: what kind of modem is this? what kind of internet connection do you have (cable/DSL/dial-up)? can you please post the output of "ifconfig" and "lspci"?

B: you need to go to /etc/X11/ and open the XF86Config file there with an editor of your choice (PICO is easy cheesy if you've never used an editor); go down to the section on Input Devices, and you should see something about a mouse there (probably along the lines of "Device" "Mouse1"). When you're in that section, add the following line:

Code:
Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Reboot your computer and see if it works (use a browser to open a random file and see if you can scroll).

It turns out the modem does work...I guess it was just messed up yesteday, because I'm posting this using Lynx on slackware right now. I'll give the mouse trick a try asap.

I'm a newbie. Just a question, does the ISO image on a CD meant that you installed Slackware on a CD or you will still have to install the PC no matter what?

Well, to really use Linux, you'd want to install it to your computer. The CD itself boots into a very minimal version of Linux.

I'm thinking the entire mouse section should prolly read something like this:
Code:
Identifier    "Mouse1"
Driver        "mouse"
Option        "Device" "dev/mouse"
Option        "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option        "Emulate3Buttons" "off"
Option        "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
I'm still shooting from the hip here, so if it still doesn't work, I'd just go to www.google.com/linux and do a search for your mouse type and getting it to work in Slackware. There's bound to be a mini-HOWTO on it somewhere.
