Ok...what's the point of installing Live CD on a HDD when you have original SLackware you can Install on HDD?

I tried to install the new slackware everything went fine until the end where it asked to type in root password and i couldn't type anything,i'm using a newer laptop by the way.When it asks about the keyboard should i leave it as it says us key board or is there a different setting for a laptop?

By default on Linux when some program ask for your password doesn't show any character to avoid * counting. So type it even if you're not seeing a * for each character.

You could install Slax to harddrive using this mini-howto: http://slax.linux-live.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5044
But you'll need to create and format the partitions for it, it's not easy as selecting a menu in firefox.
