Question About Downloading Slackware


I want to download Slackware 13.37 (DVD version). So I went to http://slackware.oregonstate.edu/slackware-13.37-iso/ but for the DVD version all I can see are the .asc, .md5, and .txt files. Where is the actual .iso file to download and burn?

Have you read the README.1st file in that directory?
Quote:
If you're reading this on ftp.slackware.com, you will find that the
ISO images are not here. This is because we simply don't have the
bandwidth at ftp.slackware.com to provide ISO images.
ISO downloads take a long time, and block people from retrieving
small updates.

If you're looking to download the ISO, consider using BitTorrent.
If there are active torrents available, information may be found on
on http://slackware.com. BitTorrent is available as a package for
Slackware in the /extra directory.

Mirror sites may also have the ISO images up for FTP.

Use the .asc files here to verify your ISO images are authentic.
Other mirrors, like http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/sla...are-13.37-iso/, have the ISOs.
