Unhappy Slackware Distribution


How can I get a FREE Slackware distribution? I cannot aford to download it because I have a slow transfer rate! Do you know some kind of a site where I can order it as FREE as possible... or maybe at a very low price??? I don't need any manuals or anything but the CD!

you can always try this site..... http://www.freelinuxcd.org/ but it seems they are always out of cd's to give out.. probably be a while to take to get one.
you can try www.linuxmall.com , they always have cheap prices on them... but I didn't see Slackware on there..

If you really want, I can send you a copy... just email me if your interested.

Not to undermine you tricky, but I just wanted to say I also have an extra set of Slack8 burned. Just thought i'd throw it in there in case anyone else even might wanna try out the Slackster.

Thumbs up thanks

thanks for your help and support. I forgot to mention that I'm from Europe, Romania and there might be some problem with the shipping cost. Does anyone know what is the shipping cost?

If in Romania the AVERAGE pay for a job is around 100 US Dollars... 5$ it's something but for me it's no problem...! So this means that the shipping cost does not represent a problem anymore!
