n00b Slacker

Well, ok I am finally making a jump to some non RedHat Distros anyways anyone have any suggestions or tips for slackware? I figured since I was sick of problems I was having with RedHat 7.3 I was gonna try out Suse, Mandrake, Slack, and if nothing else go back to 7.2 cuz I have had nothing but weird problems with 7.3... (i.e. computer never froze up before 7.3 )

Yeah, reading the slack book online really helped. It is the only authoritative source on slack on the net. Other than this forum
