i think i will try to install that version, but i have some questions:
i have two drive's, the big one (d: in microsoft windows) is 300 gigabytes fat32 and has no opperating system, i use it to store all data, then i have my first hard drive (c: in microsoft windows) wich has three partitions, the fat32 for microsoft windows 98, and then the other three wich slackware needs to have, in ext2 i think, i use lilo to boot.
i heard about zipslack wich is a small installer, would be nice for what i want, right? and it installs in a fat32 partition right? but... linux always needs those three partitions for what i know, swap, the root and... ... boot!?
anyway is there any problem installing linux in a fat32 partition? that way i could access the linux drive when im ussing microsoft windows. if that is possible, what boot loader would i use?
sorry im confussed...
i have two ethernet cards, one of them connects to a cable internet connection and the other connects to another computer (wich has netbios enabled over ipx and thats what i use in microsoft windows 98 to trade files and work in network) what packages do i need, to have a internet connection and later i would also like to access the netbios folders in the other computer (if that is possible, in ipx) "Internet Tools and Protocols
"This group includes: inetd, openssl-solibs, pidentd, ppp, tcpip and wget. If you plan to go on the Internet or communicate over a LAN using ppp, then as a bare minimum you will need 'inetd', 'ppp' and 'tcpip'. You may need 'pidentd' and 'openssl-solibs' in order for your ISP to authenticate your connection. 'wget' is a download utility. Some GUI download utilities are just a 'front-end' to 'wget', so you may need this. I haven't yet confirmed if Opera uses it so I include it. 'curl' is another very useful 'downloader' library with advanced functions."
sorry im confussed, i hope you understand my questions, i dont know what version to download, the zipslack? (refering to my first question here)
and also, i will need someone to tell me wich kernel to use and how to update it (or should i just use the stable version of the last slackware version?)
