I also want to use Ubuntu, Mepis, Mint, etc. on my _retarded_ computer
(1.7GHz Celeron having 256MB RAM) but unfortunately the system
requirements for all these distros are too high. I heard a lot about
Slackware's low resource requirements and that's why have downloaded
it. You're right, you do need some experience in setting up Slackware.
I am currently trying out different distros including Slackware. It's
clear that I'll have to spend some time on Slackware upfront but if it
runs fine on my retarded computer, I am fine. Right now, I am sending
this email using Kubuntu - though from another machine with 2GB RAM
and 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo processor package.

Best regards,
