Perhaps you could give some more information on what you're trying to do? looks like you're trying to get your wifi to work. here's a howto on setting up wireless: http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=1282.0 

This "ip" command... I suppose it used to work on Debian or some distro built on it? They've been known to add their own custom commands.

Are you trying to use madwifi?

Here is the right command:

ip link set addr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx dev wifi0

Yes I try  ip link set addr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx dev wifi0
but there is a error
bash: ip:command not found
I looked in the /sbin/ip and this distro has no command ip.........

I am trying to change Mac address of my wireless adapter.
Ifconfig wifi0 hw ether  not work also

all this command work very vell on other distros

/sbin/ip is one of the utilities provided by the IPROUTE2 project. It is included in a standard Slackware install (iproute2 package) and is not specific to any distro.
