Slack install w/o floppy or cdrom

Is there a way to install slackware without a floppy or cdrom drive, I do have 2 harddrives. I'v been told I could install from network if I could boot into the linux setup, I'm lost any ideas?

I think it would be worth borrowing/buying a cheap CD device for $15 and save yourself a lot of hassle. You can install Slack via network, and I've never done it, but there some info here:

Good luck -- J.W.
