I think manually adding an /etc/resolv.conf is what did the trick. Not sure tho. I was using a make shift /etc/route.config... Don't know if that was screwing things up. I removed it and stuck with a Slackware specific setup. Switched to using DHCP in rc.inet1.conf, created a rc.modules based from Slackware 10.2, manually defined my /etc/resolv.conf by looking at Slackware's, defined necessary info in rc.wireless.conf and it runs... Thanks again. This is nice.... I was getting tired of OSX.... :-) I have some $ left over. Think I'll donate to Slackintosh.
