    Ubuntu 8.04 hardware information on IBM t30

    I'm new to Ubuntu. I was able to install Ubuntu 8.04 on my IBM T30 as standalone OS. However, I cannot find "Hardware information" under System --> preference. I'm trying to setup my wireless connection but I cannot find my wireless card. However, when I run the hardware test the wireless card detects. But when I go to the network management, it only shows the wired connection and the dial-up modem connection, no wireless. Can someone help me to get the "hardware information" and setup my wireless?
