Smile How to install through the USB-stick?


Hi.

I have this around 4GB Slackware DVD image I downloaded last night. I was thinking to install it today through a USB -pendrive of 8 GB.

A little bit of googling confused me...So, I thought why not ask it here in the forums for direct and correct advice....

Thanks.
