Slackware 2 CD Install?

Hey all:

I've been playing with slackware-current lately, and I guess you can now call it 9.1 beta 1 (see the most current changelog).

It seems that Pat has now added support for multiple install CD's, but I'm a little confused on how to do this. Basically I'm using the 'mkisofs' script included with the distribution for making an .iso from the tree. I'm leaving more and more out just to fit everything on one disc, but not it seems I don't have to.

Has anyone figured this out yet?

I noticed that too. Today when I was doing a fresh install of current and I went to check the install process and the screen was asking for the next CD. I didn't have one but fortunately was able to cancel it and it still finished the install. It seems to work fine, but I don't know what packages were not installed.

I am investigating now.
