Failed to locate a program for configuring the date and time. Perhaps none is installed?

if you searched for HTH (which is short for Hope This Helps) then try searching for a NTP utility ;)

As Lynch said, you need NTP (Network Time Protocol). It comes on the Red Hat Cd's and I would assume that it is on your Slackware CD. It would be stupid of them to not include it. Most Linux distributions will include the majority of Open Source applications with their distribution.
