By all means try another distro if you feel that that would be best for you. Slackware runs KDE just fine, though.

which other distro would be ideal for the same server applications that i want? also, i think it is possible to have a wireless card on the linux box and use it as a access point for multiple computers? again, which distro would suit this?

They all do, really. It's just a matter of how they go about it. With Slackware, you set it up yourself so you know it's done properly, and you know how to fix it if it goes wrong for some reason.

open /etc/X11/xorg.conf in your text editor of choice. Spend a few minutes scrolling through it to familiarize yourself with it, although it is pretty straight-forward. The thought is more intimidating than the reality, I assure you. If you still feel you need help, we'll help.

Edit:
Interesting that your link leads to microsoft.com.

Edit edit:
You have an extra bracket in your url.
