well,

I can't promise I'll be a lot of help, but:

logged in as root, did you try to run xf86config ? (or is that what you meant by "I ran xfree86" ? )

And with the USB, i know its a wireless hub, but the wireless for that I do not think matters as far as the OS goes. (correction anyone?) Is there a device plugged into it that is not working? the bare.i kernel does have usb support. You just have to configure the device you are connecting.

(On all of this I am taking it that you did a FULL install and are taking it from there.)

let me know... good luck - tw

hmm.... try running xfree86setup... it's better than xf86config and will get you to the X....
after xfree86setup try startx. I guess you'll be in the graphic mode by now. After you get that running I'll try to help you out with the rest....

I think I might be able to help with audio.

Have you installed the ALSA packages (-driver, -oss, -util, and -lib)? If so, have you run alsaconf as root? I'm not sure if your card is supported by ALSA; let me check. It is so alsaconf should solve that problem. After running alsaconf, run
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.alsa
I'll check on the NIC.

For the NIC you should download the drivers the vendor provides (there is a link to them on the link you provided). Untar it and run setup.sh as root (SearchLQ for how to untar archives). Then just run xvnet as root to configure the module.

Which version of Slackware and kernel did you install? That would help too. Slackware is using Xorg lately, so xf86config shouldn't have worked if you have that latest versions...
