Smile Slackware + CDs


Hello, heh this is my first post just wanted to say hi but umm.. thats actually not the real reason why i'm posting I will explain below:

Well, my computer is not the best and I don't have a CD burner and I want to get Linux Slackware setup on my computer i'm a linux newbie, Yeah but the problem is.
That I don't have a CD Burner thus the conclusion is I cannot burn the slackware CDs what I am pretty much trying to ask is if anyone could send me the slackware Cds through the mail I would really appreciate it. Well your probally thinking "well whats in it for me huh why should I help this punk newbie" well the truth is there is nothing in it for you it must be out of the kindness of your linuxian heart :P

Anway if your ready to do me the favor
Please email me at
garmaise@colba.net
and I will send you my home adress

Thanks, a bunch

1) http://www.linuxcentral.com/catalog/...=C1CBmBjAZqtCV

2) You dont need a cd tp install slackware, you can download that distro on floppy disks. read on

3) CD burners are cheap these days (about $56 canadian)..buy one

4) You can wait for someone to answer this post.

Good Luck

Some distros have images of their cds available for downloading.
What I did was install Zipslack(http://www.slackware.com/zipslack/) and use it to install the rest of the stuff on my image.

good to hear that you got it. You can afford $45/month DSL and cant afford to buy a cdwriter/linux cd's? ...hmm. Anyway, redhat 9.0 is great!
