.iso.asc to .iso how do I do it?


I just downloaded the 4 disks from Slackware.com and I am confused about how to burn these disk images.

I have burned iso's before but what I downloaded is a bit different than what I am used to.

For each disk I got a .iso.asc and a .iso.md5 as well as a folder with a whole bunch of stuff in it.

What do I do with all of this to properly burn these disks?

OK I get what the .md5 file is and realize I don't need to worry about it but I still can't figure out how to get the .iso.asc to be a normal .iso so that I can burn it. Someone please help?

The folders that I got have about a disks worth of data on each of them. Does it matter if I have no .iso? Can I just copy this data from the folders to a disk and it will work the same as a .iso?

No, you won't have a booteable CD if you do it that way.
You only need disks 1 and 2 to get a fully working system, 3 and 4 are just sources for the programas included in the other two disks.
You can also use only CD 1 if you're not going to use GNOME and KDE.

I don't know what you downloaded but .iso.asc files are just signatures for the .iso files, they are not needed, same for .md5 files.
Go here: ftp://ftp.scarlet.be/pub/slackware/slackware-10.1-iso/
And get install-d1 and install-d2 .iso files.
