New Clean Install of Slackware 12.1 --HELP--

I am currently running Fedora 9 on one of my old Dell Inspiron laptops. I recently heard about the fast and stable distro Slackware.

Can anyone help me with a step by step guide or a preparation of what i should do so that i can get a clean and successfull install of Slackwar 12.1

Welcome to LQ & Slackware!
There are several good online references in the ''Slackware-Links' wiki.

I would encourage you too look at the 'Slackware Reference Section' to get some good online help.

BTW, You should visit the Slackware Forum.
