Slackware 12.0 on Toshiba Satellite L45-S7409


Hello all, I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite L45-S7409 and I want to put slackware 12 on it. I owned a Sony Vaio before and trying to get slack on that was a nightmare, I installed it fine but getting graphic's and wireless support was a whole nother matter. I'm just curious as to how this laptop would handle it so if anyone owns this or owns a laptop similiar and is running slack any advice tips or tricks would be greatly appriciated.

Have you tried googling it?, It would also help if you told us your wireless card model
