 Slackware Linux

Unix Review takes a look at Slackware.

"Slackware's installer is pretty basic and doesn't do all the hardware detection that other distros do now, so you'll need to manually set up your sound card and printer. However, Slack does attempt to autodetect your network card so that you don't need to worry about knowing exactly which kernel module the NIC will need. So far, I haven't found a Linux-compatible network card that Slackware couldn't detect."
