Even 100k's was too slow for me.
So I just downloaded the entire FTP Tree from a local mirror (which I know always give me 800k+) and created my own DVD-ISO from current using these (easy) commands:
mkisofs -o /tmp/slackware.iso \
-R -J -V "Slackware Install" \
-v -d -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
-sort isolinux/iso.sort \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/isolinux.boot \
-A "Slackware Install CD" .
To save yourself some time (and bandwidth) you will not need the following directories from the ftp tree in order to create a bootable slackware ISO:
After the ISO is created using mkisofs, just burn it using the program of your choice.
If you want to split it over two CD's, the process is very similar and has been well documented on this forum. The instructions are available here:
