Installing Slack in a VMWare Virtual Machine


Hi All

I am having problems with the install refusing to load CD 2

I got the first part of the install done but now its asking for the next CD which it wont open, even tho the CD is loaded into the CD Drive.

Is there any way of getting it to load the second CD?

there isn't any OS critical packages on disc 2, you can simply halt the install there, make sure and do the configure section of the setup program, then after a reboot you can mount disc 2 and install the remaining packages.
