Late review as I have moved on to SlackO 5.7 ,exe
I ran 5.6 .exe
on my Compaq
CQ 57 for about a year before upgrading to 5.7.
Install was just a Mouse click and answer a question about installing grub. Just say yes if installing what I did.
You will get a Windows 7 and a SlackO 5.6 choice to boot on a boot screen after powering on.
Uninstall is done through add/remove programs.
This kind of install can be compared to a Ubuntu wubi
install. It is a good way to get your feet wet if a first
time Linux user.
In the year I ran it. No problems. All hardware worked.
No troubles to report what so ever.
Salix repositorys in SlackO 5.6 and SlackO 5.7 worked out very well for me with no hiccups.
I highly recommend this.
