I have an old compaq laptop (like brfore Hp owned compaq) and I put slackware on it a couple of years ago an then got so busy with school I couldn't do anything with it. I would like to know how to get the harware specs so that I can try to get the drivers that I need, most inportant for me is the video because I hate that jitter skip thing it does when you drag a window and the drivers aren't loaded. ahhhh.
I heard that you can do this very easily with knopix.
what do you all think?
I was also thinking about putting something else like DSL or maybe even trying to find a more user friendly small linux out there.
