Do I have to download every single file and directory shown and then merge everything on a DVD as an .iso file, or what?
PS: I am well aware that Slackware is probably too difficult for a novice like me! I am just curious to know how it works since there is no .iso file posted on the site.
Look at: Slackware 14.1 X86_32, X86_64 stable released. Torrents!
We encourage users to use torrents to relieve the loads on Slackware.com & mirrors. Once things start to settle after a new release then the ISO from one of the mirrors
could be used. Please note that not all mirrors will provide Slackware ISO files;
You could use;
Alien_Bob is part of the Slackware team. You could use the mirror-slackware-current.sh
script to create your ISOs' in desired format; CDs' or DVD. Read the script for information, well documented by Eric so you can work through the script.
Slackware is now released as stable Slackware 14.1 for x86_32 & x86_64.
You could consider;
Order the latest version of Slackware Linux on CD-ROM (6 CDs in all), or the whole distribution on a single DVD from The Slackware Store.
That way you support Slackware project.
Plus do not forget that Slackware
forum is the official Slackware forum here at LQ.

Hope this helps.
