How to burn AIDE to a CD?


I have a few questions for you guys... How can i install AIDE and chkrootkit on a floppy? Do i install it and put the the AIDE folder on the floppy and create a /bin/sbin/ folder and put the binary in it?

After i have installed the program how do i know if i can delete the installation folder? With some programs like nmap you can delete it but others like chkrootkit you can't. I haven't found anything in the readme that mentions it either.

Should i compile and install programs as root? Don't you have to be root to compile and install a lot of programs?

What do the README and INSTALL files say about it?

You might want to check out CheckInstall to manage source code installations/uninstallation

Thanks, i had grep'ed for "floppy" but apparently i should of read it more closely Would i need CheckInstall if i'm using Slackware 9.1? I just installed Slack 9.1 and haven't used it much till i have gotten it secured but i'm pretty sure theres a command or GUI you can use to easily remove packages... Will that not work if you install from source code?

Not usually. Binary distros package managers usually only handle the pre-compiled (binary) software packages.

I installed checkinstall and it seems pretty nice. I'm having a problem with AIDE though. It says i need libmhash properly installed and quits. I have installed mhash which seems to be the same thing as libmhash just like the install file said.

Code:
./configure
make
make check
make install
make clean
The make check said everything was fine and it appeared to install fine as well. I have reinstalled it, and tried installing AIDE without using installwatch, without installing to a floppy, and every time i still run into the same problem. I don't know where to start to fix this and get AIDE installed.
