"Slackware, one of the older Linux distributions, has gained a
deserved reputation as a stable, well-designed system. It is not
recommended for new users since it doesn't have a package system as
is the case with Debian and Red Hat, but for a moderately advanced
user, Slackware may be what you have been missing about Linux."
"There will be four basic steps:
Documenting your system;
Preparing your hard drive;
Installing the base Slackware system;
Configuring the system."
"Bill Gates reportedly once said, "640k of RAM ought to be
enough for anyone." It's that kind of forward-looking view of the
world that gives us a peculiar DOS contrivance now turned into a
useful tool: the disk partition. ... We'll exploit this construct
to leave one partition formatted as a Windows partition and to
create a second partition formatted as a Linux partition on which
to install Slackware."
