Slack 11 and its DVD ISO

Hey lads,
Been trying to get Slack 11 to upgrade my machine at my lab, but I cant seem to get any link to the ISO DVD. It keeps crashing.
I've downloaded from portuguese and british mirrors at
and none of them completed the ISO download.
can I merge the iso CD images as in this thread?
Cheers, I am going nuts with this matter...

Yes, you can make a dvd out of it. Copy all contents of the CDs to your harddisk. Some files will be copied over existing ones (they are on more than one CD) but that should be no problem. Then go to that folder. Get the script from Eric (Alien Bob) here:
Open it in a text editor and scroll down. There comes a section with an mkisofs command to build a DVD of the stuff. Not the CD sections, they are right above it. Modify it to your needs and substitute the variables in it. This should be not to difficult and after that you got a nice DVD that should boot fine
