I'd like to go back to CentOS, but I don't feel like burning 6 discs again, I have them, but I'd rather not risk making ones that don't work again...
So, should I try to get CentOS up and running, or go with Solaris? I have the Solaris disc, but wasn't very impressed. Seems like a lack of repos and very little amount of things you can install, and little support on here.
I would like to try a BSD, but everytime I have, I haven't had any luck. FreeBSD never installs correctly, DesktopBSD would be nice, but the installer is screwy, or was that the version I used?

The biggest reason I like CentOS is due to its "feel". It "feels" like a powerhouse to me, strong and stable, anybody else know of anything like that? Debian to me seems "light and agile", but it aint what I'm looking for.
Was it the installer or the person doing the installing that was at fault?
Grapefruitgirl is the one that helped me through Slackware installation as well as Solaris, along with GeneralFailure. We tried multiple times to no results. The General even got on a chat room to help figure out the problem as I installed, to no luck. If I say I tried, and something was wrong besides me, it probably was when 2 other slackware users don't know why it won't work.
Sorry for the sarcasm, sometimes I can't help it. Was it a hardware recognition problem? I know next to nothing about the hardware side and luckily have had no problems. Pity you couldn't give Slack a try, hope you find what you're looking for.
