How would I install slackware 13.0 on a netbook?

Hi I have an MSI wind u100 netbook and I want to install slackware on it, The netbook does not have a cd drive but I have an 8gb USB drive.

The netbook is currently running Windows 7 and I want to dual boot with Slackware.

I downloaded the DVD ISO from the slackware site and I need to know how to install it on my netbook without an external CD drive and prepare the usb drive within windows.

If you can get on Ubuntu, go to System > Administration > USB Startup Disk Creator. If not, then you will have to do it manually. I expect there are some Windoze programs out there that will do it for you, but the Ubuntu disk creator is simple and good to use
