SubjectWhich kernal version to choose
I'm a new Linux user trying to make the transition from many years 
running windows. Since I'm having to learn *nix _and system
administration at the same time I'd like to have some advice on
choosing a nice, stable kernel version that gives good dial-up TCP-IP
performace/stability.

I've installed the Slakeware version 3 and have XWindows running at
1.2.13. While I'm at it I might as well ask for advice on while
window manager I should be working with. Is one more stable that
another? have significantly less memory overhead than another?

My principle aim is a development environment for Perl scripts so I
need to have access to a forms capable browser.

My system is a 486/66DX2 with 16mg ram, 24mg swap, CirrusLogic 5428
video card.

Any and all advice appreciated!
