    slack on laptops


    hey i was wondering? someone told me that slackware is like the best distro for laptops what do you guys think? ive never used it and im downloading the isos now (dossnt hurt to have another distro lying around even if i dont use it) but yea.. im looking to put linux on a 750 mhz laptop with like 128 megs of ram.. just wondering oh yea, also before i go about reformatting everyhitng on one of my discs... does slackware come with ndiswrapper when you install it? or do i need to go get it off the internet?

    From my experience, Slackware is very good for laptops. I use it on my Compaq. I would recommend it. As for ndiswrapper, it doesn't come with Slack, so you'll have to download it.
