Could someone please be so kind to post some links with adventurers for
low-lvl characters that are more hack & slash oriented? like, a lot of
fighting, and less intelignet plots and all kinds of stuff that involvle
more thinking then "which modifier should I apply here" :) 
Thanx!

I am just getting my sons into D&D and hack-n-slash is the best way to
begin. Explaing a sword attack and shield block are MUCH easier than
trying to explain a diplomacy check. The way I started them is by putting
them in "basic training". The king of the area has demanded that all young
adults coming of age must participate in his standing army for 1 year. This
premise allows me to train the boys on different manuvers as well as giving
me a great setting for 1 off missions. The first mission my boys will be
attempting is a simple scout mission. They will be told the location of an
enemy force. They are to sneak as close as possible and assess troop
strength. The truth is, the force is an advanced training group on manuvers
and there is little chance of the boys getting harmed. But they dont KNOW
that. Future missions will be given as they present themselves, but a simple
dungeon crawl seems to be in order. This less than linear approach will
allow
me to pick up the pace when they seem to feel bored, or slow it down when
they seem overwhelmed. At the end of the training, they will have gained 2
levels.
I am working up a prestige class that will allow them some funky team
combos.
This is to fulfill their love of video games. Hope my rambling has given you
a
few ideas.

Check out Goodman Games at www.goodmangames.com

Look at their Dungeon Crawl Classics. This one is new:

I think you'll be pleased. They have plenty of lower level modules too.

Yep yep. I'm not a big fan of 3E, but I still keep the place
bookmarked, because it has lots of juicy stuff for many different
gaming systems. Converting things over isn't all that hard, either.

thanx, but my future players, aren't kids, nor are playing for the first
time, but are just h&s kind of players. on the other hand, twill be my first
DM experience, so I'd like to have all the things handled on the paper
instead of combining on the fly. just to make the things work. I got The
Sunless Citadel but haven't read it yet. Is this one suitable for my plans?

Yes, played through the Sunless Citadel and it is pretty decent for
hack-n-slash.
It does have a few non-hack parts to it, so your players will have to at
least
PRETEND to listen to a few npc's. Overall, it is an enjoyable module. If you
don't
mind spending $100, the worlds biggest dungeon is a product that is supposed
to
be filled with years and years of hack, slash, running, screaming, and all
the other
fun things. If you are "old school" think Temple of Elemental Evil spread
across
100 maps. Or a whole book full of Teagle Manor sized dungeons. I havent
played
it but everything I have read about it suggests it is more than ample for
your slashers.

Check the Wizards web site - there are quite a few. Also, try checking out
http://www.goodman-games.com/index.php
Their Dungeon Crawl Classics are probably exactly what you are looking for,
and they are cheap.
