Slackware 10 Laptop Success

Just installed Slackware 10 over my existing SuSE 9.1 dual windows XP laptop.
HP Pavilion ze4610us.
Just installed bare.i with nousb and all works (have not tried modem)
25 minutes setup or so.
Touchpad works; would not with suse (and newer kernel) without lots of tweaking, nice improvement over earlier slackware version.
Slackware is easier to use and easier to setup than SuSE. Also music and dvd works.

Oddly enough, I have just switched back to Slack on my laptop (Twilight Zone theme tune plays)
