If you want Slack 9.1 you'll need two CD's,
with older versions one will do.
2. Does the CD writing software need to be installed on the destination machine?? (With windows 'Direct CD' software must be on any system that wants to read a cd created with this software). At the moment I dont have any CD software on my destination machine, but it has a CD/RW drive.
DirectCD is packet-writing software ... I wouldn't think
that there's a trivial way of using a CD burnt with that
to install ANY Linux.
3. Ive read somewhere that the distribution can be downloaded by NFS?? Could I save the files to my internet machine and then connect by network file system to the destination machine and avoid cd's altogether??
Well, that's true, but I don't know of any NFS
servers offering Slack on the internet. It's actually
meant as a solution for your LAN. As an
alternative you could use the FTP installation
scripts that can be found on http://freshmeat.net.
Search for Slackware and FTP.
