Cool

Start by building your own kernel,
software runs faster on the machine that it was compiled on.

Slackware Rocks!

what do you mean by 'building my own kernel'?

how do you do this? do you need programming knowledge? coz i tried to learn some languages, but the best i can manage is logo and html

thanks

Also i suggest you close down all services you dont need, this way the machine will run faster, and will be more secure.
Look through startup scripts (/etc/rc.d/rc.*) and comment out all services you dont need.
Hope that helps!
