the filesystem in linux is much more elobarate. if you want the glorious details. read files usually get installed in /usr/bin or /usr/local/sbin. there is really not equivalent of program files. this is not windows. :-)

i just searched for "how to remove packages in slackware" and got this

you should really read the docs or search google first before asking.

feel free to post if you still have trouble
