I need to make some backups, and then get busy.

Will take me a few days to download the iso I need.

Will post feedback here when there has been progress.

Hint: You can order the CD set on http://store.slackware.com/. Slackware is not a community distribution and not funded by large corporations. So it's worth of consideration, if you have very bad connectivity.

Thanks for the suggestion, another forum suggested I try Porteus. I have it installed on a flash drive, and have a working OS.

I now need to learn how to install apps, get my trackpad working and install my printer. I installed Porteus with LXDE.

Why not just buy another disk? Heck, you can find them on ebay for $20!
Or - if you have at least 2 usb-ports, install to a 16-gig (or bigger) usb ... I have my own 'portable' slackware on a 16-gig pen-drive - awesome!!
