When I bought 9.0 I got the Slackware Live! CD, know known as SLAX. Unless I'm mistaken of course. I will say though that the Live CD has saved my butt more than once.

When you purchase Slackware from the store you get the 4 disc set which includes :
Disc 1 = Install disc 1
Disc 2 = Install disc 2 (Gnome/KDE) also Bootable Live rescue disc and Extra and Test Packages.
Disc 3 = Part one of the Source code and the Slackware manual
Disc 4 = Part two of the Source code and Zipslack also old/pasture packages

All in all pretty good bang for your buck. I help support Slackware by purchasing a subscription -- that way new releases come to me automatically (even though I use swaret to stay up with current) and you get a price break $24.95 compared to $39.95. I consider it a small price to pay for such an excellent product.
