Depends on your system.

You use whatever software you have to burn a DVD data disk.

Current slackware also allows you to put it on a USB device as well.

Actually, Unbootin shouldn't be necessary - just a raw copy of the ISO to the USB memory stick..

Note: I haven't tried this yet, but Slackware is supposed to have a hybrid boot loader that can do both.

Not necessary, but may help to insure the correct device is written to. Either method will work. Not enough info from the op has been given to give a good answer that will be on target.

Burn the iso to a DVD and follow the instructions here,

http://docs.slackware.com/slackware:install

Have fun!



Attention Admin: Perhaps this thread should be moved to the Slackware forum?

Be sure to check the md5sum for the ISO image that was downloaded. You would then use your burning software to burn the ISO image to DVD.

You can use Slackware Doc Project for helpful information for Slackware.

Plus
SlackwareŽ-Links has useful links for Slackware and other Gnu/Linux users.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

If you burn the *.iso to disk, be sure to use the "burn image" tool in your burning program. Where it is located on the menu varies from one burning program to another. Burning an image is not the same as copying a file to disk.

If you just copy the *.iso to a disk, what you will have is a copy of the *.iso. "Burning the image" recreates the file and file structure of the original disk.
