Here's what you should do:
Locate the file /etc/rc.d/rc.netdevice (create it if you don't have one).
Add in the line:
/sbin/modprobe nvnet

to the top. It should be the only line there unless you have multiple NIC's.

Next, edit the file /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1

This file is well commented, and should be easy to figure out. Probably all you need is to uncomment the line about DHCP. There should also be a place to put your hostname. I can't post mine, because I have no AGP support in Linux right now.

Alternatively, you can try to run netconfig and not let Slackware autoprobe network cards. The Slackware utility knows nothing about non-stock kernel modules.

Good Luck.
