Both links are down, now. But I can give you a temp account for upload so I can make it available to others.

Cheers, Eric

Ok, it appears that my router reset some of its settings recently, so I didn't have port 80 open. It should be working now.

Yes, well we already established that 1.1.2 was available (and is available on numerous other mirrors). 614cooker found a site that had 1.01 available, but it was a very slow download, so I'm looking at getting it more widely available.

The problem is that this version was designed for DOS, so it's not very nice.

What I mean is that the files use the 8.3 filename convention so as to be compatible with DOS, not that after installing linux it would run on top of DOS.

I should mention that I've unzipped the top-level zip files, and there were a few crc errors. I don't know if they're part of the rar (I would assume so since there weren't any warnings or errors when unraring), so this might not be completely ok to use. I'll see if the packages with the crc errors are available from 1.1.2 and adjust accordingly.

Here are the errors I've encountered so far:

Archive: SK101A09.ZIP
extracting: a9/GHOSTSCR.TGZ bad CRC 405686c9 (should be 951c12f1)

Archive: SK101A10.ZIP
extracting: a10/SMAIL.TGZ bad CRC 4013952c (should be 24c99063)

Now each archive contains zipped or gzipped tarred packages, so there may be errors in them as well. Sigh...

Ok, so here what I did - I unzipped everything that was zipped, replaced the two bad packages with their corresponding versions from Slack 1.1.2, lowercased all the filenames, and repackaged it as a bzip2'd tarball. This means you won't have to bother installing unrar if you don't have it. It's also available from the same place:

You should have a file similar to this INSTALL file from the Slackware-3.3 release.

and now from http://www.truthfatal.org/Packages/S...e-1.01.tar.bz2
Just in case ciotogs site doesn't work for some people, or it goes down for some reason.

Sorry I can't help with the OPs question, but the INSTALL.txt that Bruce Hill linked to should hold the answers the OP needs

The install text file is available here: http://ciotog.net/slack/Slackware-1.01/a1/INSTALL

It's fairly self explanatory - basically you will run "rawrite" from DOS or run the command mentioned in this file to use dd from within Linux. The file you want to write to the floppy disk is "a1disk" in the folder a1 (or within the SK101A1.ZIP file if you have the original .rar from winworld). Then in disks 2 through 13 you will copy all files within each directory a2 through a13 to their own floppies (or the contents of each SK101A*.ZIP). If not all files will fit, take a look at the file DISKA* in each directory, and drop one of the optional packages. You can always install anything missing at the end. From the one I put together A9 and A10 look to be too big for a single floppy, so I guess the two packages I had to replace are now larger than their originals.

Once the 13 disks are created, simply boot from disk A1 and follow the prompts. Presumeably since you can copy all these files over from within DOS I don't think case matters, but of course I haven't tried it myself yet.

If you need to do this for any real purpose, I would recommend using a later version like 1.1.2 that is known good and hasn't been obviously mucked around with like this .rar has been.
