Slackware-13.1-Hacks-USB Installer

Posted 02-25-2011 at 12:24 PM by arniekat

Creating A Slackware USB Flash Disk Installer

This can be used to install Slackware to a netbook. What this does is create a bootable USB Flash Drive with all the packages needed for installation. You only need a 2Gb Flash Stick to create the installer including the packages.
NOTE-You will need an existing Slackware machine to create a USB Installation Stick!

Posted 02-22-2011 at 02:31 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)
