Slackware, Slax I chose Minislack because of the low requirements (running fine on my Pentium II - 400 MHz with 256 Mb RAM, 32 Mb swap, on a 1.5 Gb harddrive partition - I recommend 2 Gb, though).

how're the docs?

I tried Slack, but was disappointed by the lack of current docs. I also never could get my dialup working, and then eventually made my back to Debian.

I think that a Slack-derived distro could be pretty successful if they provided really well-done, current, accurate docs.

I like Debian. The docs are pretty good. Though, despite apt I always find myself installing stuff without telling apt about it (current Java stuff, for example). Sometimes I crave that spartan simplicity of good old Slackware though. ;)
