Welcome to LQ!
The current stable version is Slackware 13.0
. You can choose X86 or X86_64 for the arch. If you want to get the DVD from 'The Slackware Store
' then you have media options.
Back to your Slackware 12.2 query;
You will need to know the device that is going to be used. You say the M$ assignment is 'e', when you boot the install CD do a 'fdisk -l' from the 'cli (command line)' to identify the drive assignments. The hdd could be '/dev/hda,/dev/hdb or /dev/hdc'. This could vary as to the type of drive with 12.2 plus how the 'CD/DVD' are configured for the system. You should be able to identify via the 'fdisk -l'. Post the output within vbcode tags to aid us in diagnosis/selection.
You could look at the 'Slackbook
', 'Slackware Basics
' or even '/Slackware-Howto
' to get a detailed idea as how you should continue.
Do a search here on LQ for this very subject as I know this has been covered many times.
