There is a bit of an easier way.. if you look at the ChangeLog.txt
file at wcarchive.cdrom.com:/pub/linux/slackware-3.4, you should be able
to see all the files and programs changed between the release of Slackware
3.3 and Slackware 3.4. There isn't that much of a change. What I like to
do, is when something is updated, just grab that item out of the disk set,
install it, and I'm set. Grab the Changelog, and see what you may need
