The only partition I share is swap. The root partition for Redhat (the new install) is /dev/hda13 All other partitions are used by Gentoo. I think these will be gone ...

    I think these will be gone by the end of the night, I am going to see if I can install slackware. I don't know really if it's a great choice, but I don't want an RPM based distro. I just hope there aren't too many 'funny little things' that cause me grief with slacwkare.
    I want my sound to work without hassle. I want my ti4800 nvidia card to work without hassle. And I want me networking and firewall to work without hassle (I use arno's firewall script). I want gnome to work without hassle.
    What do we think?

    hehe.
    not a chance.
    I don't mind doing a bit of work, as long as it will work in the end, and not break
    I suppose really that slackware should be good enough by now ;p

    If your going to use slackware i suggest Debian its far better the Slack IMO, Even the installer is better i dont like the slack way of splitting things into sections like l and d just MHO

    I don't have debian disks, and it's quite old, unless you go unstable?
    Perhaps I should just reinstall gentoo??

    Its not old its mature, they pick stable versions of software so you have a stable OS, The unstable/testing verion is the same as Gentoo it just means the versions they use have less use and thus less testing which will make them prone to bugs/crash. IMO it means it is a better more robust OS
