You are right but there are differences exist between Redhat and Slackware in following:
- Package management
- Path of starting scripts
Above differences are acceptable those would not confuse anybody while using Slackware and Redhat but if there is anything that creates more differences between Slackware & Redhat in level of different configuration than I think one may get confused.
If you want to learn RedHat try out Fedora - fare more alike.
SuSE I can't tell, but if you assume it is like OpenSuSE (which I think it is) try openSuSE.
I can't see any reason to use SlackWare to learn RedHat or SuSE - I use my knowledge from Ubuntu in SlackWare but not every thing holds up, you need to get the closest to the OS as you can so try either Fedora or OpenSuSE is my advice.
As you say your self the differences between SlackWare and the two other may be to big for you
My intend is to learn Linux not any particular distribution so I have selected Slackware meanwhile as a precautionary step I had asked those queries to be clear where one should not be confused at any movement by using different distributions.
Anyhow I have started to use Slackware; it is fine to me.

Listen, if you know a bit of programming in C and need to program unix-type operating systems the next transitive stage is for sure C++. However, have in mind that Java is like learning C but 99% object-oriented(o.o.) and with no pointers or memory-management tricks. It would be good for you to see... (5 Replies)
