I walk through the installation and immediate post-install of the Slint GNU/Linux distribution, a Slackware-based, Accessibility-focused distro, optimized for use by blind/vi users. It's billed as a beginner-appropriate distribution, but, I find that not to be the case at all. Not only is user expected to know about using the non-gui disk partitioning tools, but, as I show in the demo, user has to manually correct local time and other things I probably didn't discover in my short exercise. What's more, when user elects to have Network Manager set up her network, it won't qwork correctly on a wifi setup having psk. I didn't try wep, I just connected to an insecure spot.
