Hey guys, I had a Compaq 2700T for a while and installed Linux Slack ware on it, didn't have too much time to explore it, but installed and ran great with KDE. Now I've got a new laptop Inspiron 9300 yes I love my screen ;p but now I'm stuck between Slack ware and Gentoo. I plan on doing alot of Wifi security testing with this setup, at the moment I've got windows xp installed with my Linux partison with swap partison ready to be activated in Partison Magic . Just about go time. I know Slackware is said to be hard but I installed that and got it running with little difficulty but Gentoo seems like a whole other story I still consider myself a n00b don't know what compiling a kernel means but I'm sure if I follow the handbook I should be ok. I'm not sure what emerge is all about either. basically I'll be blindly typing in what's in the hand book. If you have any tips for this dual boot install let me know. I think Gentoo will have more benefits than slack ware due to that updating system I'm reading about but not sure what it does also lol. Sometimes you got to take the flame right on and singe only a few hairs.
