Default SLAX internet problems...

i downloaded the standard version of SLAX to get my ipod into ipod linux but i can't seem to get the internet running. i've tried 'iwconfig' and it did nothing, and i did the ip thing. i went to the konqueror app and typed in google.com and nothing happened but it couldn't find host or something.

you need to install drivers for nic and the like, as they do not install automatically, especially in slackware. slackware is hard heh. i dont understand why you just dont use like knoppix or something.
