Installing Slax 6.1 on hdd

Is there any way to install slax on the hard drive. I tried extracting the iso contents to drive c: and then using grub tried to run it as I run other puppy distros. But it loads and reaches a point and I get a message "looking for live cd" and then I get a message "something went wrong, this should not happen, press ctrl+alt+del to reboot".

As you see, it's quite complicated because Slax isn't intended to be installed. So you complete the obstacle course, and then there's a new version and you do it all over again. If you want a Slackware-based distro with the KDE desktop, Salix would be less trouble in the long run.


boot from hd, slax
