How to install Slack without CDROM support?


Hello

I have a serious problem, because I want to install Slack 9.1, but my BIOS and motherboard don't support CDROM - only floppy disks and hard drives.

so, what can i do?
Do you know anything that could help me?

You can download the Slackware files via a mirror and do a harddrive install from a fat or ext partition. You would also need to make a boot disk or somesort I do believe.

Making a boot disk: http://slackware.com/install/bootdisk.php
