Hi,

Welcome to Slackware and LQ!

Take look at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

You will find links for mirrors and torrents for Slackware 13.0.
Torrents: SlackwareŽ 13.0 is just one.

Edit: sorry about that but you can still find the links for a ftp.

Sometimes it takes a little while for the ISO's to travel to all the mirrors. If you are unable to use torrents, you should check out the different mirrors and see if you can find one with it. You can find a list of the mirrors on the slackware site.

Yeah - probably better for you.

Edit: Ubuntu - African word meaning cutting and pasting from a text file to the command line is too hard for me.
