Install Slackware from Pendrive: img file?


I have downloaded the image of the current slackware

it is writen that one can make the pendrive using :
dd if=usbboot.img of=/dev/sdx bs=512

On the other hand how can we make this under WINDOWS XP (I have not yet slackware installed)?

dd if=usbboot-slack13.img of=/dev/sdf

For curiosity's sake, could you provide the specs of your non-recent computer?

To start with the specs

it is powered by a 380 MHz AMD-K6-2 processor with 3DNow! Technology, meaning it will conserve the battery and will make it last longer. As for the memory there is 64MB SyncDRAM included and you can upgrade to a maximum of 192MB. Video graphics integrated are a wide range like: ATI Rage LT Pro TM hardware-accelerated 3D graphics, 2X AGP for enhanced video, graphics and 3D performance, Laser-sharp MPEG2 video playback. The screen’s resolution is 1280x1024 and supports 24-bit color providing up to 16 M brilliant colors. The hard drive can store 4.3GB; it might seem a bit low regarding that applications tend to ask for many resources and memory these days but you can always get an externalhard drive and store as many files as you want. Multimedia drives included are 4 X DVD-ROM drives and 24 X CD-ROM drives and you will be able to watch movies on your laptop directly from the DVD. The display measures 12.1 inch TFT Active Matrix giving good image quality with bright colors.
