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.

The method I walked you through is the full Slackware iso which includes the Slackware tree to the USB drive.
This might be the problem. The slackware64-14.0-install-dvd.iso I downloaded form: http://www.cyberciti.biz/open-source...e-14-download/ and it says it includes everything exept source media. Do you know where I can get the install iso that includes the slackware tree?
I have a question. When I am in setup and doing "select source media" option, which iso file is it looking for? Is it the slackware64-14.0-install-dvd.iso or is it the slackware-14.0-source-dvd.iso?
The install media. The source is not needed during installation.
I defer to firerat, he is on the right track - I had not noted a few things! Will continue to watch.
BTW - is there a reason that you are using an iso from anywhere other than the official Slackware mirrors? That should be OK if the MD5 verifies, but I would recommend the official mirrors instead.
