When I started MacSlash [macslash.com], I barely knew any perl, and no SQL at all. But, because Slashhosting handled the set up, I could just jump in and start playing right away.
For a small fee, they will also set up nifty set of tools for advertising, which is helpful. And, they're working on a SlashHosting portal site to promote sites on SlashHosting, which could be a very valuable resource.
It's great in the fact that you can go up and running with a slash site. I'm not sure if they'd install it for you. They are *decent* about support.. I think it's *decent* cause i'm running an old version of slash that's not supported, but slashhosting is a nice way to go.
