I have a disk of Slack 3.5, but don't know how hard it is to upgrade from there to the current distribution.
What you guys think? Worth a try? Or is there a better option?
I would say it's impossible. In fact, it would be impossible with any Slack older then 8.1 to upgrade to current, because they've changed the package system considerably.
And a downloaded version of Slackware should work, regardless if it was burned on Windows or Linux or something else. The very best option should be to tell us what you've done and why it did not work with the downloaded version of Slackware
