SlackWare CD files...

I am trying to install slackware, but I need to know what files are supposed to be on the CD. I have 3 files on each cd; slackware 10.0-install-d1.iso, slackware 10.0-install-d1.iso.asc, and slackware 10.0-install-d1.iso.md5 (convert d1 to d2 for the second disk). When I try to install, when I get to the CD's it just tells me to insert the next disk, and when I insert the next disk it says the same thing... Do I have the wrong files, or a different problem, and if so, how can I fix it?

Thanks in advance,

What exactly does that mean? You may have burned the CD incorrectly.

The only file you need to burn the CD are the .iso files. These are CD images. What software did you use to burn the CDs? Most Windows burning software will have an option to burn from an image. Select the .iso files when doing so.

Disregard my problem. I burned the ISOs as files instead of the files within them, just found that out in a completely unrelated link on this forum... sorry, heh. 12 hours wasted on something this obvious. Damn.
