New install: net unreachable

Please help, this is a newbie being stupid question....

I've done several slink installs that have worked fine.

I'm trying to install it on my laptop now and am having problems 
with the system once its installed. Basically everything seems 
fine but I can't use the network (3c589 pcmcia ethernet). I can ping 
the machine's own address but pings anywhere else result with ping 
declaring "not allowed"...

My ifconfig and route table look fine. I know the driver and network 
is okay because the entire system was nfs installed initially! This 
problem occurs when I reboot after completing the entire install 

I suspect that I've (unknowingly) installed some sort of ip security 
program that is not allowing network access, I see things in the boot 
log like "ip paranoia deamon"... and others that I don't understand. I 
used the custom package selection of dinstall. I've carefully done 
the process twice with the same results.

As a newbie, I have no idea how to search the OS to find the 
offending software if that's the problem. 

Besides any suggestions on what might be causing this problem, can 
someone please let me know how I'd (efficiently) go about tracking 
down offending software in general?
