Minimal Slackware 8.1 Install


I would like to know what packets I should take when I install Slackware 8.1 to get the smallest linux I could.

I will install a firewall on it so I would not need so much more programs then needed for that, and no X.

Can somebody help me or give me a link to a good site with a guide ?

Load the base series (A) and that's it. You'll need the default setup from there to set up your system. You can go back and delete some of the "setup" packages after you are done. Load your firewall package of choice after you have the base up and running.

If you can get it installed it isn't too bad coming from a slackware background
