Hi. I got terrible problems installing slax because I can't see the "install option" to install it permanently on the hard drive of my computer. How can I do that ? where is the option ? Thanks. I just hope you reply soon because I am desperate and I don't want it "Live" anymore.

Thanks.

There is no "install option" because Slax is not intended to be installed on hard disk.

If slax would be the only OS you want to install on that harddisk, you can use the
install scripts.

From the Slax CD, you can run "boot/bootinst.sh" When your HD is a FAT partition
"boot/liloinst.sh" when your HD is an EXT2, EXT3 or other partition type

If your HD is NTFS formatted, you can search this forum for ways to install slax on it.

Na. Too many problems man, that's why many people hates linux, all the time giving out many problems... I needed linux for an old computer, but after see that its a headache installing linux, I gave a try to a very light XP.

Sad to see ridiculous limitations on linux, you can't even install it!

It's a slax limitation rather than a linux issue.
Most linux distro comes with gui installer.

You can install linux, but slax not so fast and easily. You get mad because you want a nice gui installer which is not present in slax. There are many versions of linux that can be easily installed. Try antiX, puppy, slitaz, tiny core, etc. You can even install slackware, but that is too hard for you :( That would be a learning experience and get your hands dirty and learn about linux in the way. Get Ubuntu or Mint if you want easy way to install a version of linux of the millions that exist.

have a nice day sir!/Mamm~
