Hi,
Stupid question alert!

I just completed downloading all 2 GB of Slackware 9.0 My question is how do I burn it all on CD-R's? What is the correct file order for each CD? I know it will take something like 4-5 CD's, just like the dist. as if you bought it off the shelves.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

Are they ISO files? Not sure how that download turned out to be 2gb. The ISO file on Linuxiso.org is only 635mb. Where did you download yours from?

I would download the ISO file here:
http://www.linuxiso.org/distro.php?distro=17

And use Nero or EZ Cd creator to burn the ISO to a CD.

Hi, They are just the raw files I got from the slackware site, not an iso.

I just don't know how to seperate them into the proper CD-R's. What is the brakdown per CD?

Thanks!

I have no idea. I personally would download the ISO and burn it to cd. I would assume you downloaded the sources as well which you really dont need. If you have Broadband just download the ISO file and burn it with nero. Probably save you alot of time.

Ok, I'll just do that and get the iso's. Yeah, I just went and got the entire current version from Slackware's site and downloaded the whole shabang last night via FTP.

Thanks!

All you need is this file:
slackware-9.0-install.iso

And then burn it with Nero or whatever burning program you use that can burn ISO files. It is only 662mb. You basically downloaded 1.3gb's worth of stuff you didn't need.
