Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I'm new to linux (I honestly don't really know how to do much of anything with it yet) and I've installed slackware to start with (despite recommandations to try Red Hat or Mandrake first.) I've had no issues with the installation, and have managed to get it to register my wireless card (a linksys WUSB54GC) the problem is that I can't seem to get an internet connection, even though i'm connected to my wireless router.

I had to uninstall and go back to XP just to post on here and any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you need any more information just let me know biggrin.gif
