do as root, or make yourself the owner of that dir

root probably easiest
Code:
sudo cp /pathto/slacklog.txt /path/to/USB/

alternatively, you could type it in manually

this is easier

Code:
grep -H "$" /var/log/tmp/SeT* > /run/USB/slacklog.log

Thanks Firerat. I ran ot of time -- I really appreciate your help. I was hoping to try out slackware for the first time and learn a little more linux, but I will try it out later. Maybe I just got unlucky with this computer. It seems like other people don't run into this much obstacles when installing it. Anyway, I think I learned a couple things during the process. I am starting class tomorrow -- I am phd student in math at zhe jiang university -- tomorrow is my first day -- see you around!

What do you mean by this is this a separate usb with the slackware iso file copied to it or a slackware tree with a slackware directory with all the subdirectories containing a through y subdirectories?

I also tried mounting another usb with the media tree on it
If your using a usb key to boot the installation setup from and it is larger than 2gb you should be able to copy the slackware tree to it. Then you will have to create a new directory to mount the usb key to before running setup. for things to work. Do not mount the usb key to /mnt or a /mnt subdirectory. Then use the premounted directory option to install from.

Great! I was suspicious of the cyberciti dvd, always use the official mirrors!

Welcome to Slackware!
