If you like Slackware, Get Vector Linux SOHO 4.0
I have been lurking about reading alot about Vector Linux. I have loved Slackware since I first installed it but wasn't too crazy about all of the "post Install" work that went in to it. I think anyone wanting to try Slackware should download Vector Linux SOHO 4.0. It is absolutely amazing. While it inslatted it looked like Slackware's install program but asked many many more questions. It asked me if I wanted to play DVD's on drive /dev/hdd and installed all od the drivers and codecs needed to play DVD's out of the box. It also started the NVIDIA 3d setup during install and got that running. Additionally, it included openoffice and a great set of admin tools. Samba configuration is better in this distro than any of the big boys. Its actually easier to configure Samba in Vector than it is in RH9. Its like Slackware - simplified. Anyway, I have been a distro junkie for the past few mos and may have found my favorite distro. Its still Slackware through and through. I can still use Swaret to upgrade and install.
So, if you have been interested in trying Slackware but were afraid of it, Get Vectorlinux 4.0 SOHO edition and you will love it.
