3. Downloaded all 9 files and put them in /usr/local -

If you keep the USB disk to FAT32 and keep all Slackware data, then you can install using that. Just select other while installing.

I mean, start the installer, there is an option.. from preexisting files on HDD or something like that.

I don`t have any preexisting HDD
My HDD is empty.:scratch:

And the reason why a have to install from USB is because my cdrom is dead:mad:
