Kernel-2.4.25-ZipSlack Available Separately?


Questions regarding the AmigoLinux kernel (Kernel-2.4.25-ZipSlack)
as described at top of AmgoLinux package description page, http://amigolinux.org/download/Amigo2/Amigo2.0.txt

Where is this kernel from and how could one download this separately
from the other Slackware 9.1 packages for zipping (e.g., on slow connection speeds)
??

"Stock" Slackware 9.1 and 10.0 /a/kernel 's and /a/kernel-modules at ftp://<Slackware mirror>/pub/Linux/distributions/slackware/slackware-9.1/slackware/a/ and ftp://<Slackware mirror>/pub/Linux/distributions/slackware/slackware-10.0/slackware/a/ among other places.

Non-ZipSlack2.4.25...bz2 kernel (30MB) available in ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/

Have the full Slackware 9.1 package sets from a previous Slackware 9.1 downloaded ISO CD. Any chance that the Amigo2.0-specific kernel (+kernel-modeules) and Amigo specific pckg's could be available in one place (ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/dist...ns/amigolinux/ ?) for separate download before being zipped for std Amigo installation ??

Hey, another option than using full 90MB downloaded amigo2.0.zip

You can get the kernel by downloading the bootfloppy image here:
http://amigolinux.org/download/Amigo2/amigo2rc10.img (1.4MB)
Stock Slackware zipslack kernel will work also.
This is kernel SOURCE CODE:
Non-ZipSlack2.4.25...bz2 kernel (30MB) available in ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/
for compiling your own. I compiled 2.4.25 with the same config as zipslack9.1
For a smaller install you could start with either:
http://amigolinux.org/download/others/amigo-II-flux.zip or
http://amigolinux.org/download/others/31MB9_1.zip
But, neither one has any of the 'Friendly' Amigo HWSETUP features.

Compressed Kernel-2.4.25-ZipSlack on "bootfloppy image here: http://amigolinux.org/download/Amigo2/amigo2rc10.img (1.4MB)"
Good start.

The complete _list_ of Amigo2 packages is at http://amigolinux.org/download/Amigo2/Amigo2.0.txt, These include the above kernel, kernel-modules, over five dozen "standard" Slackware 9.1 pckg's from aaa_base-9.1.0-noarch-1 to xpaint-2.7.0-i486-1,
packages used by hwsetup, other Packages visible in pkgtool, ... etc.

The next question is, where is/are the central repository / download-site(s) for any separately downloaded Amigo kernel-modules,the 'Friendly' Amigo HWSETUP features, other [non-official-Slackware 9.1] pkg's visible in pkgtool, ... etc. ?

TYIA,

The HWSETUP pkgs are not available for separate download. Since I (alone) maintain the site over a 56K connection, I have not been able to upload everything I'd like to. For instance, lately 2 persons have asked about self-extracting install files, which I hoped to provide, but time and money restrictions don't allow for that so far.
