upgrade to current without using swaret?!!


I want to upgrade from slackware 9.1 to current but i cant make my internet connection work so i cant use swaret. Is there another way of getting upgraded without using swaret? Can i download the files and then install them seperatly? Any suggestions?

thanks. Do i upgrade all the files that are in each folder of current (.e.g. a/ ap/ d/ etc). Is there any specific order how i do that or simply following the order of the folders. thanks

Maybe I got lucky, I updated all my packages using slapt-get to current. I am using KDE 3.2 right now :P
