Slackware 9.1 Disks?


I have currently Slackware 9.0 and I would like to upgrade to 9.1, I was looking that the 9.1 version are 4 disks? Do I need to download all?


slackware-9.1-install-d1.iso
slackware-9.1-install-d2.iso

slackware-9.1-source-d3.iso
slackware-9.1-source-d4.iso

Thanks a lot!

No.
you really only need disc 1 & 2.

(I think disc 2 contains the necessary packages for KDE and GNOME, so if you don't need those, then you really only need disc 1)
Discs 3 and 4 are the source code for all the packages in the distribution, which you can use if you want to compile everything for you specific system (perhaps similar to Gentoo).
