Parent article: A look at Slackware 10.0
There is SLAX which is 1 182Mb download. Burn to a CD and it'll boot a
slackware with KDE-3.3. You can also install it to a hard drive and have a
very basic Slack.
Anything else you might want you can get from mirrors if its part of
Slackware, from http://linuxpackages.net if its not and/or you can roll
your own from a tarball and create a slackpack with checinstall, and/or
convert an rpm with rpm2tgz or a deb with alien. I my needs are simple but
things compile well on Slack as everythings where its supposed to be and
if it ain't stable it ain't in there.
I've been using Slack since 8.0. before that I was an install junkie
running a stable Mdk and trying anything else that came down the pike on
spare partitions. At one time I had three linii plus windows available at
Slackware with crossover office to run office 2k when I bring something
home from work is all I need these days and I just keep a spare slack on
another partition for crash and burn operations like kernel compiles when
