I have found 2 versions of slackware 9.1

there is a 1 cd package, and a 2 cd package.

The 2 cd package is better because it asks you what services you want to run at startup, this is great for setting up a web server.

Slackware DVD ISO

Since dvd burners have been out for a while now, and Linux distros like Slackware have now been on at least 2 cds, I think there should be DVD isos of Slackware soon.
