radvd + ipv6 problems in Linux

Hi everyone,
I have a weird problem in Linux. Well, for the past month i've been very interested in IPv6, and, a couple of days ago i decided to try to get it to work. I run Slackware 8.0 on my gateway/router-box, and, the freenet6.com-program and scripts started and worked just fine. There's one problem though, I want to give the rest of my lan access to the "IPv6-world" also Smilie And, I've read some linux-ipv6-howto's and asked some people, but, I can't seem to get the radvd (router advartisement daemon) to work. Do i have to do anything manually? Do I have to run any kind of additional software on any other boxes but the router?

When I run radvdump on any client computer in the network, it displays the packets being sent out just fine, but linux doesn't assign any new ipv6-ip to eth0.

Go to the usr/src/linux-2.4.5 and run make menuconfig
setup IPv6[*] and all ather you need then exit with save
and make install. Sorry for my English Smilie
