    RE: Wanaby Baby
    For your laptop, I would start with PCLinuxOS 2009 Live. It runs live from the cd, with an option to install. If it runs well (it will be slower running from the cd), then simply click the Install icon on the desktop. That will get you started. Just try all the flavors of live cds - you can't go wrong. This will get you started: http://www.pclinuxos.com/index.php?option=com_ionfiles&Itemid=28

    RE: Opinions: KDE 4.X on slackware
    I have a month old iso of current that I am running in virtualbox. KDE 4x will not run in vbox - just freezes the thing up. I don't know why, and I have not tried to find out. I really need to put it on its own partition and try it there. That said, KDE 3x is no longer in the -current tree, so 4x will be the only KDE choice in future Slackware. That's probably not a bad thing, and I will have to get used to it sooner or later. KDE 3x would probably run in the next release, but will have to be done by the user compiling it and all the dependencies. That will be no small task since KDE is a beast to compile normally. Oh yea - XFCE runs flawlessly in vbox with the month old current iso. I think its time to mirror the tree again for changes.

    RE: How can i get more help in this forum?
    Don't worry too much about poor English skills. If you get close, someone should be able to figure it out.
