rgr that. Still it seems like it wouldn't take more than a few lines of code in the installer.
Perhaps you are underestimating your users -- after all, if I was a noobie I don't think I would use a slackware-based distro. I'd use that brown distro because of apt, the high level of integration and the vast library of packages, and because I could probably find other users to help me out. I think you need to have some level of Linux sophistication to use VL.
