--Whizkid 19:16, 28 December 2007 (CET) Fizban's installation method doesn't work with the newest versions of Slackware, and the link is dead.

I just installed Slackware 10.1 on a ThinkPad 560E. My machine has 80MB RAM and a 4GB hard disk.

The external floppy from many ThinkPads works on the 560E. I used that to boot the machine.

I used Fizban's FTP installation method, and it worked with no problems. X Windows is working, but I haven't tried Gnome or KDE due to the limited memory.

Audio works fine after using alsaconf.

The machine will be used as a wireless MP3 player.
