I believe your laptop has the Marvel TopDog wireless chipset. You will have to download and run ndiswrapper to load the Windows driver for this. This link refers to Ubuntu but you will pick up some pointers from it. I don't have that hardware so I can't be of more help.

You can get Slackware ndiswrapper package here:

You may find more useful information by Googling - thats how I found this information.
