The slackware.com site has been intermittent for me for a good couple of weeks now. Your best bet is to find your nearest mirror site. Can't offer any suggestions for your part of the world, but I'm sure we must have some Ozzies here who can suggest something local.

None of those. Get the slackware-13.37-install-dvd.iso, from here:

List of mirrors from Get Slackware Linux section of SlackwareŽ-Links;

SlackwareŽ Mirrors:
Official List of Mirrors
AlphaGeek's Unofficial Mirror List <<<<<<< Great
LinuxQuestions.org > ISOs > SlackwareŽ
elektroni <-FTP
Oregon State <- FTP/HTTP + Open Source Lab + Hosting Policy + bandwidth of over 1 gigabit per second
AlienBase <- Alien_Bob's mirror + 'via http' + rsync://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/ + 'The physical server is on a gigabit Internet connection, so I guess I can offer a speedy mirror service! In fact, the mirrors are already complete. With a re-sync of several times a day, I hope to offer an up to date service.' Read the intro + Alien has always been unselfish when it comes to Slackware
The Linux Mirror Project <- Categories: Distributions, kernel & Applications

From AlienBase You will need for Slackware64 ISO, you can get Slackware (x86_32) from the mirror;

slackware64-13.37-in..>25-Apr-2011 10:14 4.3G <<<<< ISO

slackware64-13.37-in..>25-Apr-2011 10:20 68 MD5 signature file
slackware64-13.37-in..>25-Apr-2011 10:17 198 PGP signature file
The above signature files would be used to verify the download & the validity of the file. Type used is up to the user. As to the 'txt file;

Welcome to the Slackware Linux version 13.37 64-bit x86_64 DVD.

Here's a tree showing the contents of this disc. For complete details,
see additional documentation files.
You really do not need it but view the file online to see the whole content.

Not all mirrors will have the ISO. I am sure you can get a Slackware mirror close to your location.

I get all my Slackware stuff from the Internode mirror over at http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/slackware/

I've found it to be a very reliable Australian mirror.

I used to use a UK mirror, but it was always 2 or 3 days behind with updates, don't know if it's improved. So I changed to a US one.

This is the Australian mirror that I have been using. It can take 24-48 hours for new updates to appear.
