I think he's looking for a step by step guide with pictures on how to setup DSL... similar to the "Perfect Desktop" guides.


I know that you said you are leaning towards DSL, but here is a guide that may interest you. It's got pictures and wonderful directions on how to install Slackware 12, which most of the steps are the same for Slackware 13.

The Perfect Desktop - Slackware

No problem. If you go to the bottom of the link I gave you, it has guides for many other distributions also! Just pick which one you like

Have fun!
