How can I install Slack using a small partition and hugesmp.s
My CD-RW is broken and no floppies (not sure 2.6 would fit anyways). how can I install Slackware 12.2 on an unused 32mg partition using hugesmd.s or some other installer.
My partitions are:
hda1 - old /boot no longer used
hda2 - Debian Lenny
hda3 - swap
hda4 - were Slack is going
Thanks in advance. :)
If you need more info. or it just cant be done please tell me. You should be able to to boot the installer using lilo or grub.
If your BIOS allows it you could try an USB or PXE (network) installation. See the BOOTING.TXT file and the /usb-and-pxe-installers directory on a Slackware 12.2's mirror.

Wooo Hooo I did it!
I'm writing this from Konqueror and Slackware 12.2. :D
Huge thanks to Woodsman who on another thread suggested a web site answered all my question.

What I had to do was extract files from the iso to one directory. Then put bzImage and initrd.img into /boot add it to lilo or grub. Tell the installer where to find the files.
