A trip down memory lane....

In this video I'm going to install Slackware 1.1.2 on an old 386SX40 using floppies. The goal is to get the base linux installed, along with networking and X support.
Not me, but the guy who made the video.

EDIT: Note https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...0/#post6090126

All hail @upnort!

Circa 1992. That was definitely a ways back down the lane.

I love how much the Slackware installation process *hasn't* changed over the years. Those screens look very familiar. ;-)

Ncurses. If I booted a Slack .iso and didn't see that, I'd think something was amiss.

That's okay -- often I'm accused of not getting out much either.
