something is wrong with the HD installer for DSL and SliTaz. but SliTaz doesnt use kernel 2.4 its 2.6 anyways. then once i do try to hd install it is very hard to get my computer to boot from my hard drive, with the DSL/Slitaz installed hard drive plugged in. i fried the first hard drive coaxing it to let me boot with my hard drive, so i am being extra careful this time. i got it to boot but its not showing up in the my computer

The grub for dsl and I think the harddrive install from the menu only works on the first partition on the first internel drive. I think you can copy the linux24 kernal file and initrd file to a directory and point to it with grub if you already have grub installed to boot dsl, but not sure.

Here is one place you can download slackware 11.0 from if your still interested.
