search this forum for an article titled "slackware 9.1 released", read through ..
My advice in short: googling(bittorent), get the window installer version, but not the latest (the one with b1.., something version 3.1,3.2..), double click the file u downloaded, if it doesn't complained anything, then u have bittorent installed..
Restart ur browser, check the slackware.com/torrents/index.html for the images u need .. It is faster than conventional downloading from mirrors .. at least 2 or 3 hours faster, even more ..
Btw, do u know howto limit the upload rate on bittorrent 3.3-slack ?
Since I got 60% of an 65-image, my download rate is lower than 1kB/s, but upload is ~6kB/s .. That must be caused that most finished peer (potential seeds closed their connection immediately).
On that window-gui it is possible to re-adjust the upload rate during the downloading, but it has a minimum limit about 10% of download-rate .. (fair .. isn't it ?) .. Haven't tried that azureus, next time ..
