Just the .iso should do the trick.

I don't use nero, but all the burners work about the same. That iso file is an image. When you select to burn the image, you will then select the iso file.

If you want to take a look at what's in that file, download a copy of WinISO and take a look. You will just see a directory structure and all the files. Basically like looking at a CD.

Good luck with your install. Slackware is nowhere near as difficult to load as it's made out to be.

edit: Forgot to add that the md5 is an error checking file. Kind of like a checksum. You can get an application like md5summer and check that there are no errors in your downloaded file.

You only need the first 2 CDs. I don't know what's on the other 2, but I don't have them and did a full install just fine.

Slack is x86

As for the install, you actually only NEED the first ISO as the second only contains KDE and Gnome and you only need it if you plan to install one or both of these.

Exclamation

disc 3 and 4 are sources for the 2 others.
Disk 2 is KDE, GNOME, kernel 2.6 and some other extras.
Burning:
On the first menu I think there is an option called: "Burn Image"

BE CAREFUL!: DO NOT CREATE A DATA PROJECT AND PUT THE ISO FILE IN THERE.
Choose the option Burn Image somewhere in your Nero

No, the 64 means it is for 64 bit hardware. Also, once you get the ISO's burned I suggest printing out the Slackware-HOWTO that is on the cd. It will help greatly in installing.
