you need the NTP package from the Slackware site or from www.linuxpackages.net. But if all you need is a utility to auto get atomic tme and set your hardware clock read this:

We have NTP for VL5.8 in our repo.  Last I knew it was in testing. If your running VL5.9 I can package that too.  I still have the build scripts, just never thought to package it for 5.9  :P

Yes I'm using VL 5.9 RC3 It would be nice to have it in the Repo.
Thank you for your efforts.
