I've installed Slackware 14 on an old machine and bought a wireless usb dongle, a RaLink RT5370 for the network interface. I've installed WICD 18.104.22.168, and rt5370-22.214.171.124 from SlackBuilds. However, when I run wicd-curses it says No wireless networks found.

P.S. I not excatly new to linux, but since I'm not running X my knowledge of all the commands is not up to par.
