Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Wow, From what I can tell, you have a bad root disk. It sees the image for the root system, but it can not uncompress it. This may be due to a bad disk or a bad copy, or a bad sorce for creation of the disk. Good Luck auric
Distribution: RH 6.2, Gen2, Knoppix,arch, bodhi, studio, suse, mint
if you could look at the kernel boot line,
it runs those, and they are probably in loopback filesystems.
you would have to look in those. i guess.
i bet there is a slackware install faq somewhere that
has different ways to install like that.
The install program is a tricky thing to find. I do know that it is two parts. One part is the boot system. Net, disk,cdrom, etc.... then the second part is the part that installs the system. I would suspect that it cana be located if you were to run a normal install and then watch what commands it executes. via tty1 or 2. Let me know if you do find it. Thanxs auric
