Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

I'm not familiar with your laptop but you should be able to get something for your wireless. Even if you have to use 'ndiswrapper' with a M$ driver.

I like to try a LiveCD in situations like this. You can look at 'The LiveCD List'.

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
