How do I install Slackware on Debian?

Real newbie here. Am taking OS course at school but the instructer isn't the best. I heard that Slackware will teach me Linux in a week. How exactly do I install this?

Thank You -

Slackware is a complete linux distribution, as for the timescale it won't teach you, you'll still need to learn and I doubt anyone can learn everything about an OS in a week.

The slack installation guide is here:

You can download from:

Please also note that you are unliekly to want to install in on debian (as an emulation) you probably want to install it along side it on different partitions.
