I Have Slacked – Almost

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I have a i3-2220 in a Asus P8H77-V mother board, with 8 Gb of RAM, and a 40 Gb intel SSD. I have loaded 14.0x86_64. I also have the book, Slackware Essentials, which has been a big help. It boots up, I sign in as user then root, KDE comes up at the root command kdm, it works well. But I can not get the system to find the LAN, and then make the connection to the Internet. I have not been able to make use of chapter 5 – Network Configuration. I would like someone that could help. My understand of the command line seem to be inadequate. Thanks; Tom on the wet coast, in the sunshine: (HowTos)
