Susan, you should be sure to check out for a /ton/ of slackbuild scripts for third party software. is run by several well known Slackware developers and Patrick Volkerding even mentions it in the release announcements. Also, there is sbopkg at which is a great command line and dialog interface front end to It will sync with the repo and let you automatically install stuff. Works a treat.

I am darn glad that there is a distro out there that keeps things clean and simple.
