I see... thanks for that info. However, I've yet to find a slackware derivative that is TRULY newbie friendly and basically for all levels of users, not just for intermediates and up. I'd been considering Salix... but there was not much incentive in it for me, since in Mint everything is there already... codecs and all, as well as a nicely designed menu system.
BTW, Mint now has a new Mint Debian version, that is not an offshoot of Ubuntu, and should be much faster. It's in it's first release... but expect it to become more polished over time and resemble the mainstream version of it eventually. I haven't tried it yet... I'm patiently waiting for it to be a bit more matured and completed (ie: noob-ready).
