It's not easy, try to go for the stuff that is most important to you... gcc,
g++, X, Xserver.. and let the dependencies take care of themselves... It's most
beneficial to do it that way on a small system (drive).  Add packages as you
find that you need them.   Use 'apt-get' if your laptop has network access...
dependencies are taken care of much easier.

Again, I know how you feel, Slackware 96 is where I left...
