Why don't you just download the ISO. But the thing about slackware is it's really hard to find the mirrors that hosts ISOs. I downloaded ISOs after searching the mirrors for about half an hour.

btw I'm from sri lanka too.

An easy place to find the slackware ISOs is LinuxISO.org

This is where I downloaded my ISO from (few days ago). The server is fast (atlest here in Canada). Much faster than linuxiso.org. It has both 9.1 isos.
