Ok, I got Slackware now and Wifi is working.
My browser is old version, to install new version, do I need to uninstall old version first?
Let's say to uninstall Firefox, how to do it?

Take a look at
http://www.slackbook.org/html/package-management.html
I would suggest to read the book.


Kind regards

Instead of asking thousands of questions, it'd be nice if you used www.google.com for a change.
LQ is a place where you ask questions, but most members use it only as the last resort when google didn't answer their questions.

Is this thread not a perfect example of how convenience operating systems, including the Linux distros like the *Buntus that want to be free (for now) Windows, make their users weak? This is not meant as a flame, Mr Tiger, it is just a simple fact that if you use a crutch long enough at some point you can't move without it. The brain is a "muscle" that requires exercise too or it gets "flabby".
