Slackware Bootloader from Dos/Win98
 
I am in a situation with a laptop without a Bootalbe CD nor a Floppy. How do procede? Help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Your question isn't too clear so I'm making some assumptions:
If your'e wanting to install I would suggest Zipslack.You can download it and run it from the FAT partition.
If it's already installed and you need to boot I would suggest using loadlin or syslinux.
Hope this helps.

I have a laptop which does not have a harddisk. It has a CD-Drive, but can't boot from CD. It has Win 98 installed. I have Slackware 10 Disk (two disk set). I want to install slackware linux on it. I am ready to do things the hard way. How do I procede?

I'm guessing you meant you don't have a floppy instead of a hd. Anyway:
The easiest way would probably be to open the Slackware cd in windows, copy zipslack to the hd and follow the instructions for installation.
