I am by no means the "install expert" as I have struggled with USB installs myself on my machine, but once you boot and start the setup script on one medium (i.e. USB), it won't be easy to change the PATH to another mount point/partition where you have the other Slack Packages on another medium (i.e. HD).

If you have two computers, you can boot with the 1st cd and then use NFS to complete the install (this is what I did).

Or, if you are certain your computer will boot from USB and you have a large enough USB stick, you can use Alien_Bob's script here: http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/t...binstall/12.2/ This will create a bootable USB stick which will contain a mirror of the 12.2 directory. You have to have the mirror of the 12.2 directory first, so Bob has another script for downloading it here: http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/tools/

You will need to read through the scripts to make the appropriate changes. After you have ran the scripts, reboot the machine and then boot from the USB stick. If all goes well, you should be able to run setup from that.

If you have ubuntu or windows installed somewhere, it may be easier to load your usb stick with an "iso" with the "unetbootin" application. I have installed many systems and found it to work very well. Installed slackware-current on my toshiba netbook NB100. No problems.
Just followed the instructions in the slackware directory to make an iso from the directory tree.
