    RE: slack's command line
    The command line is a general Linux thing instead of there being a Slackware command line, or a Debian command line, or a Redhat command line. Look at something like: [code]http://www.linuxguide.it/command_line/linux_commands_it.html[/code] This is useful: [code]http://linuxcommand.org/[/code] and the book which can be downloaded as a free PDF: [code]http://linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php[/code]

    RE: Noob vs. Sony Vaio
    1) Does the disk work in a different machine? If not, you may have a bad burn. 2) If you are not sure how an ISO should be burnt look at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto (Zorin is based on Ubuntu) 3) What happens when you try to boot the disk? What do you see?

    RE: What is the best linux ditribution ?
    "Best" is a subjective term. What is the "best" car? What is the "best" sports team? What is the "best" religion? The "best" for you is the one YOU like and which suits YOUR computer. That distro might not be the best for me. http://www.itworld.com/operating-systems/370104/first-rule-choosing-desktop-linux-distribution-user-know-thyself

    RE: French beginner, old pc and wifi
    If there is a problem you don't understand you need to tell us exactly what happens. That way we might be able to help. Try Antix: [code]It should run on most computers, ranging from 64MB old PII 266 systems with pre-configured 128MB swap to the latest powerful boxes. 128MB RAM is recommended minimum for antiX. The installer needs minimum 2.2GB hard disk size. antiX can also be used as a fast-booting rescue cd. A special XFCE edition made in collaboration with the MEPIS Community called MX-14 "Symbiosis" is also available.[/code] http://antix.mepis.org/index.php?title=Main_Page Antix has "Cenni" which makes wifi connection easier. It might be time to get a more modern laptop?
