I ran a copy of SLAMPP in Virtual Box on Mule, my test computer, and ended up burning a copy of SLAMPP on CD. I loaded the live CD on an old 500Mhz PIII Dell machine I plucked out of the trash. It seems like it is a very nice Slackware distro with an older version of XFCE and some very heavy applications (Firefox being one of them). It is billed as a simple home server solution but other than a few add-on packages it seems like it would be no better than any other desktop based on Slackware for a dedicated server solution. I am going to poke around EnGarde next.
