As for "dir" it was probably setup in your other distro as an alias. However, slackware is "bare-bones". If you want to get all fancy with it, that's your choice, but you'll have to do the finger work. It's meant to be sleek and not have all the frills and crap some other distros do. It tends to setup less symlinks, and customized things by default than your other distros.



If you prefer those things, you can always switch back, one of the nice things about linux... choice.

Cool

I know I'm a bit late, but are you using it correctly? I know using CD you go cd space /wherever with a forward slash. You don't have a Dir but must use the ls instead. That's still getting me, though I'm not an expert yet.

That's a neat trick, but I do need practice with ls. I'll leave it. For your sig, you might wanna put something like you're dominating (or dominated) Linux like the US is doing on Sudam Hussein.
