Slackware64 install on HP dv3-2155mx


I have:
Intel Core2 Duo(T6500) 2.1GHz
800MHz System Bus
2MB Cache Memory on die Level 2
4GB DDR2 RAM
500GB Serial ATA Hard Drive
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD

Ideally I would like to use Slackware64 as the base(dom0 I believe).
Xen hypervisor.
And on top of that Slackware64(domU), Windows7(domU)? and os X(domU) if it becomes possible.
But, first things first.
A walkthrough on the Slackware64 install.
Do I install 12.2 then upgrade to current on the net.
or
Net install since there isn't any iso for 64bit yet.
Can someone point me in the right direction to a step by step/walk-through of such an endever.
And if all of this is out of reach.
then maybe just step by step on how to install Slackware64 on my new baby.
Thanks to all in advance who took the time to read my ramblings.

For an install I suggest that you download and burn a DVD ISO. You can get a recent unofficial ISO from ftp://ftp.slackware.no/pub/linux/ISO...ent-ISO-build/ (Please note the README.TXT file).

Alternatively you can download the Slackware64-current tree and build your own DVD ISO.

For general information on the installer, look at the 'Slackware-HOWTO' in the top of the Slackware 12.2 directory tree at your local mirror (see http://www.slackware.com/getslack/ for a list of mirrors).

Google or search this forum for "Alien Bob" and "mirror-slackware-current.sh" this will allow you to easily download and build an install iso.

Xen is not included in Slackware by default, and you will have to do a fair bit of research/work to get it to work. This thread might help.

I was going to wait for Slackware64 to become stable before I left Kubuntu(64bit) 9.04.
Everything except wifi and sound seemed to work.
Got wifi running.
But no sound.
Very, very long story later I find out that my current sound setup runs out of the box in Kubuntu 10.0 which happens to be in alpha.
Well in that case I'll go Slackware64-current now.
Here's my new problem.
Can't seem to burn DVDs at all or CDs without getting a "corrupted download?" message when the CD is booting up.
Is it K3b's fault? My DVD/CD drive?
Don't know, don't care right now.
I just want Slackware64 installed and then I'll cross the next bridge when I get there.
Here's what I have available to me.
A single PNY 4gb USB flash drive.
ZorOS 3.6 on CD-R.
MoBo has option to boot from internal HD, CD/DVD drive, USB or Network adapter and in any order there of.
And a fast fiber optic internet connection.
What is the path of least resistance here?
I would need "simple" instructions.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this.

K3B and KDE4 do not play well together. Slackware has KDE3 compatibility libraries and K3B version 3 in /extra on the dvd, installing these logged in as root in the /extra/kde3-compat directory with the command
Code:
installpkg *.txz
will give you a version of k3B that works. It is installed in the /opt directory on your hard drive.

Built-in webcam
