First ftp to sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/ and get the files META-FAQ
and Installation-HOWTO, along with anything else that looks applicable to the
setup you want.

Then ftp to ftp.cdrom.com:/pub/linux/slackware/ for the actual Slackware
Linux distribution.

Be happy...

A side note: one you get the boot and root disks you can try a NFS install from

1. New HDD copy; using "Drive Copy" program (W98) to dupe Linux

Hello Linux Folks,

I've got RH5.1 Linux & W98 on the same West. Dig. 4GB drive,
and would like to copy all partitions & data to a new Maxtor 5.7GB
drive using "Drive Copy" program under W98.  

I'm not expecting trouble getting it going in terms of CMOS settings,
or in terms of W98.  I am worried, however, about exactly which
files or other changes need to be made in Linux in order to be able
to successfully boot to the newly copied drive of a different size.

I have ver. 2.0 of Drive Copy, which claims to support copying
Linux partitions & data.

I'm fairly new to Linux, so please assume newbie-speak in
your responses ; )

Many, many thanks for your kindness in responding.

Sincerely,
