slax-how to get off

that is not possible. You need to simply back up your configuration files and install whatever you are thinking about. All of your configuration is in /etc or .* directories.

Heres an idea....
 
You could make a folder in the root of your hd and copy all other junk to it.
After that, you can say rm -r to any directory except the backup. After that, install
something else and put backups in there place.

IMPORTANT! If you do this... Make sure whatever you're installing DOESN'T mkfs to the disc!
Like on Slackware there's that option to "Don't format this partition".
Very very very important.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
