Angry Slack 10.1 install ISO image too big


Hi,

My ISO image is 808Mb and of course it wont fit on a CD.

Here are the step I have done so far:
1.- Downloaded the new slackware version 10.1
Wget r ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware/

2.- Check the integrity of the packages
Md5sum c CHECKSUMS.md5

3.-Make the ISO image as described in the readme file on isolinux directory:

mkisofs -o /tmp/slackware.iso \
-R -J -V "Slackware Install" \
-x ./bootdisks \
-x ./extra \
-x ./slackware/gnome \
-x ./slackware/kde \
-x ./slackware/kdei \
-x ./pasture \
-x ./patches \
-x ./rootdisks \
-x ./source \
-x ./zipslack \
-hide-rr-moved \
-v -d -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
-sort isolinux/iso.sort \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/isolinux.boot \
-A "Slackware Install CD" .

And the resulting image is 808 Mb, so the question is how can I make an ISO image that fits on a CD?

Thanks for any help!

Ignore if stupid!

Easiest way would be to download a ready made ISO image.
Go here,

http://www.slackware.com/getslack/

select a mirror and download the ISO direct.
that's what I did.
You actually only need install disc1 I found.

Thanks Billy,
Plan B worked just fine.

Also I was able to make ISO image that fit on a CD excluding the testing directory:

mkisofs -o /tmp/slackware.iso \
-R -J -V "Slackware Install" \
-x ./bootdisks \
-x ./extra \
-x ./slackware/gnome \
-x ./slackware/kde \
-x ./slackware/kdei \
-x ./pasture \
-x ./patches \
-x ./rootdisks \
-x ./source \
-x ./zipslack \
-x ./testing \
-hide-rr-moved \
-v -d -N -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
-sort isolinux/iso.sort \
-b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
-c isolinux/isolinux.boot \
-A "Slackware Install CD" .

Slackware 10.1 worked just fine on my satas hard drives using sata.i. No problem at all on my dell dimension 8400.

Thanks again
