I have now began my slackware set-up...what do I do next?


I am looking at a screen here that says Welcome to Slackware Linux, I have already done the partitioning, there are alot of selections here.. this is my first time to install slackware so I am lost.. Do I need to set-up swap partions or target partions, the partioning that I did was with cfdisk, and what i did was I made the free space a Linux File System..

You need to do both setting up swap and target partitions. Did you make a swap partition when you partitioned the disk?

Yes, and thank you.. I figured it out, I Set the swap partition, the target partition, then selected my media source + packages, and its now installing the required packages..

Thanks again, and wish me luck in my slackware journeys..
