Yep, basically I take the dirs under /slackware in CD1 and CD2 and copy all of them to one /slackware dir in a FAT partition. After choosing to install from a premounted directory and pointing setup to the /slackware dir in the FAT partition, it just went and installed everything in there.
My FAT partition is on /dev/hda1 and in there is just one slackware dir/folder:
Under that slackware folder is where I copied all of the package folders from CDs 1 and 2:
During the boot process, slackware will detect the hard drives and their partitions(if any). So, soon after I login as root, I mkdir /slack, then mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /slack. Then I tell setup to use a premounted directory by pointing it to /slack/slackware. All of my drives are IDE, so I always use the default bare.i for installation.
