Slackware issues with flash drive


Hello this is my first question and i'm trying to get Slackware on my computer by using a USB flash drive. I was successful with the first ISO but when i try to do the 2nd ISO the bootable flash drive says
I couldn't find a configuration file slackware-14.1-install-d2.iso is not supported. I am using pen drive Linux. EDIT What should i use to burn the iso file to the flash drive?. Thank you for reading and trying to help me i appreciate it .

My first thought is to use the DVD *.iso, not the CD *.iso files. In the long run, that's likely to prove easier than troubleshooting this.

You can find DVD images at many Slackware mirror sites. Here's one: http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/sla...ware-14.1-iso/

the first iso was through pendrive linux without any problems. I don't understand why the 2nd iso is giving me problems.
