Looking for someone that is willing to help me install Slackware this weekend. Would like to add you to my MSN or AIM buddy list so that if there are any problems we can get them fixed right away. If you dont mind please let me know. Thanks!

Slackware is a little different in approach to many other distros and I think you will find there is a high value associated with problem solving and investigation by yourself before asking for assistance. However I am a Slackware user myself and don't mind helping out via this thread, although perhaps a moderator could move it to 'Other OS Talk'?

The main port of call is Linux Questions in the Slackware section but I should warn you to do your homework first: this is a very different group to the Ubuntu forums.

A slackware install is not hard at all and is very straight forward although you might want to check out http://www.slackbook.org/ (it's been recommended to me but I've never used it nor know what version of slack it's for). Have fun :)
