I have tried everything to install Slash, following the instructions to
the letter. Is there anywhere that I could get help installing it? Is
there any person who can help me install it? Does anyone know of a
company that can do things like this?
What do you think of the idea: a slashcode wiki?
There sure is the installslash.org forum and the slashcode-general &
development mailing lists, but I believe a wiki would help having a
structured and searchable way to document slashcode installation and
gather experiences from different people.

Great faq. Very similar to what I wanted (lacking some features wikis=20
have). I wished for a wiki (but your faq will do :-) because I wanted a=20=
"one-stop-get-everything" place for Slash. Right now, there is the=20
sourceforge mailing lists, slashcode.com, installslash.org,=20
lottadot.com, the book Running a weblog with Slash, etc. All providing=20=
exciting and important information. I only recently heard of Running a=20=
weblog with Slash (on the mailing list, I'm reading the book right=20
now), I wish I heard about it before.
I am to blame, of course, since I probably haven't searched hard=20
enough. But I would have liked that get-everything place a reality.
=C9ric, thanks, I knew slash has a wiki plugin. I'll investigate further=20=
since the slashsite we're planning will intensively use wikis :-)
Have a nice day !

If you have root, and you're doing the install on a reasonably
modern version of Linux (kernel 2.4 or later) and perl (5.6.x or
later), it really should not be that hard.
Usually the difficult problems are people who want to do the install
on other OS's, or don't have root, or don't know how to install the
(pretty standard) libraries that some of our perl modules require,
or are confused by CVS, or munged up an install earlier and left
things in an ugly state... or who really didn't follow instructions
to the letter though they claim they did :)
If none of those matches your condition :) just stop by the IRC
channel given in the README and usually someone can help you out --
not immediately, so be prepared to keep the window open for some
hours until someone with free time responds.
