This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Its probably not the cd since its actually installed the system. What kind of installation are you choosing during the install ? Are you doing the full install ? Let us know.. but I wouldn't waste another cdr, I doubt that's the problem.
If you would like to validate the install CD you can use the following
md5sum --check CHECKSUMS.md5
from the root directory of the slackaware install CD. Most important would be the slackware directory of the CD. It contains all the packages and it has it's own CHECKSUMS.md5. I would think this would work even if the CD is mounted under Mandy.
