Wanna do a poor man's slacktop...
I have an old (1995) IBM thinkpad 755CSE, I am trying to put linux on it and not doing very well. I have a dual boot win95/ DamnSmallLinux, which I can't get Xvesa to run properly. So, I am wanting to try slackware, and have read in places that slack 7.0 - 8.1 are good choices. I want a light X-server to use a GUI for just playing around, games, maybe a little web browsing. However the only way to access the unit is to remove the hard drive and install it into my home computer, copy files onto it then reinstall the drive into the laptop. From there I know that I need boot/root disks, but how do I access the files to install them? Also what files will I need from the distro? Thanks all.
