Which CDs are needed?


I need to install Linux on my workplace because I feel the need for a "proper" web development environment and not using crippled Freeware on Windows (I couldn't find a single proper PHP/HTML editor for Windows matching the features of Quanta Plus)

I cannot use Debian netinstall because we have a wireless card and I cannot configure network at install time.

I wanted to download Slackware but it comes in 6 CDs these days I am not sure which ones are needed for a proper KDE desktop with Apache/PHP and kdewebdev tools/Quanta Plus.

Is there a package list for Slackware showing which software goes into which ISO? I tried the FTP sites but there seems to be no file which shows a list of packages CD-wise.

You should get all you need on CDs 1, 2, and 3. CDs 4, 5, and 6 are mostly sources for the software on the first 3.

FWIW, the torrents page tells you which software sets are on which CDs and the software sets page tells you what kind of software is in each set.

Thanks for your help.

Seeing that page it seems everything I need is split across the 3 CDs so basically I have to download the first 3 CDs.

Problem is I cannot do a network install either (due to wireless).
