Probably yes. Slackware 3.5 is OLD, so it doesn't have support for newer hardware.
I suggest you get Slackware 8.1 that should work with your hardware as fr as i know.
Why do you want slack 3.5 anyway?

Slackware 3.5

Three reasons.
1. I have the CDs of the version 3.5
2. I cannot download the version 8.0 as my cnx is not fast enough.
3.I cannot afford to buy the new version (8.0) on CDs

Let me know if you have an alternative way .

Thanks

Easy, since Slack 8.1 just came out many Linux magazines will give it away on their CD's (well at least here, in Italy they do). So go to your local newspaper shop, look through the Linux magz and see if any have Slack on the CD's, then buy it for miserable $5.
Good luck!

So go to a place like Linux System Labs (lsl.com) and pick up a CD-R with a Slackware 8.1 install on it for $1.89 (plus postage). Anyone who can't afford that probably can't afford the electricity to power up their PC at all.

Find your local linux users group, you'll be able to get a copy from them for next to nothing.
