Hi all, this is my first entry to this blog. I have been member of LQ for a while, I referred to this whenever I had a doubt regarding , of course, Linux installed in my system. To all the newbies here, if you were windows guy and planned to switch onto Linux( no matter what distro) then I'd prefer having a dual boot in your system. It might degrade performance a little bit but it allows you to switch to your previous buggy OS ;-) ...jokes apart, at some point, as you've just started, you are likely...

I have a problem.

Here is what I did:

1) Depending on your PCs processor architecture download the CentOS netinstall.iso file from

Installing Slackware 12.2 On An Old Dell Laptop

Posted 08-17-2009 at 01:31 PM by stuartd

I have an old laptop computer that I have had an old distribution of Fedora running on for ages. I wanted to use the laptop with QCad to create drawings of a brake van that I am helping to renovate at my local steam railway.

I could have installed QCad on the Fedora setup but it was very slow and clunky and I thought that with a more stripped down installation it might be quicker. So I decided to install Slackware 12 that I got on the DVD that came with a copy of Linux Format Magazine...
