    RedHat 9 is like a million years old; really consider using something newer, like Fedora Core.

    I'm not really sure about the Red Hat, but as far as which is better - Slackware or Debian - that's really up to you. Slackware is better for more advanced users, I think, but that's just my opinion. Give both of them a try and see how it turns out.

    as far as "better" goes, in linux it's a matter of taste and style. If you want simplicity, compactness and highly customizable slackware is a way to go.

    If you want a stability and less headache on package dependencies (using apt-get), debian is the one. But I never really get my hands on debian that intensively as I did on slackware.
