Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

On my Windows box, I can route just fine. On my Slackware box, I can't.
I just checked my /etc/host.conf
it looks like
order host, bind
Is that correct? Just to clarify, All other machines, but my slackware box, are routing correctly.
Okay, from the slackware box, I logged into my router and updated my DHCP clients table. For some reason, my slackware machine is NOT showing up in the routers client table? Weird? But I AM able to get to the routers config page from my slackware machine.

I'm not certain what you are saying doesn't work. One thing you haven't posted is your routes. What is the output of the /sbin/route command? Do you have a default route set? Can you ping other hosts or one of the ISP nameserver addresses. You said "my nameserver". Are you running your own nameserver?
PLease post contents of:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf stripped of content (use the command cat /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf | grep -v "^#" | grep -v "^$" to produce that) /etc/resolv.conf as you have them currently.
The netconfig command can not configure any other interface but eth0. For your ath0 interface you will have to do some manual work.
Did you require any wireless configuration (ESSID, channel, WEP/WPA key)?
