can Slackware 13.0 be upgraded to 13.1 from within the OS?

because of my location I don't have the bandwidth to download the full 13.1 ISO (I'm lucky to hit 20 kb/s for an hour at a time), but I already have a 13.0 image. So I was wondering, if I install 13.0 on my computer, can I update to 13.1 from within 13.0? If so, about how large is the download for the upgrade? much smaller than the 13.1 ISO itself?

Check <your slackware mirror>/pub/slackware/slackware-13.1/UPGRADE.TXT for upgrade instructions.

I'm not sure how large the download will be. Probably not much smaller than the 3 CD ISO's, but it will be smaller than the DVD since you don't have to download the source code.

It might be easier to just buy 13.1 from the Slackware store

Or use another PC either (with faster connection, even with Window$) and download the packages to a usb stick. Then move to your PC ... That's how I do ...
