I'd have to question that, even in my recent-Debian-convert fervour.
Slackware comes with a whole range of kernels - low power, apm etc.
When I installed Debian on my work laptop I had to compile a new kernel
with APM and then compile pcmcia from source to match.  Nothing taxing
but I wouldn't choose Debian to install on the old laptops I get hold of
for personal use - definitely not on the 4mb RAM/170mb disk/pcmcia
floppy machine I spooned Slackware into.
