can't configure ethernet card?

I just installed Slackware 12.0 on a IBM netfinity 3000 (no clue which model though dunno where to find it) Anyhow after the installation of the KDE i went to configure the card and it said "Unsupported Operating system please select from the following operated systems" and it would give me a list of old linux distros (like FC5 and Slackware 9.1.0) Whats going on?

(wasn't too sure where to put this, if it needs to be moved to the server forums or somewhere else go ahead)

P.S. Don't be mean, still new to the linux scene
