Re: slackware wont boot
For slack-based used the latest zenwalk 4.4.1. It is not a livecd install, it is text-based, but installs and works very fast. I recommend it because, it is very bleeding edge and yet stable.. Unlike slackware and most other derivatives, they use xorg 7.1 which allows for beryl/compr. The others use xorg 6.8 and xorg 6.9.
Use this and you may be very amazed at the sheer performance.
They have a package manager in CLI and gui form that makes upgrading your system, and getting new apps very easy.
PS: Wolvix is perhaps one of the easiest slack-based distro to install for a total newbie. Zenwalk is pretty easy as well. But, I would give wolvix its props here. The admin on wolvix is also very very helpful from what I have read and seen. If wolvix used xorg 7, I would be there also primarily. I believe you can learn more as the admin or developer seems more patient than most to explain.
