Love this distro, not my first encounter with Linux, but my foundest, really speaked to the geeky side of me ;)

For the 3e-pc I have know idea really, traditioanally Slackware has been somewhat conservative in regards of new ideas like power-saving function, WLAN etc(a little bit irony). But really shouldnt be to much work, using standard tools.
I don't think tho that Slackware has any flashy GUIs for controlling ACPI and/or WLAN(or any other function for that matter), other than those in your DE of choise(KDE/GNOME the other dont have those kind of programs right? xfce/flux/blackbox/e16/17?)
