Just what it says...

If you're planning to install Slackware using packages on a local hard disk
partition, or from a NFS/HTTP/FTP server, you don't need a full-blown CDROM
to boot from.

This mini-ISO image of less than 40MB in size contains everything to let you
do the above, and nothing more than that.

The mini iso contains no packages, and you will have to perform your Slackware
installation from a pre-mounted local directory, or using NFS/HTTP/FTP
network installation.

It's the exact same installer as Slackware 13.0. Just (as mRgOBLIN said) without all the packages, and intended for network installs.
