Downloading Slack 9.1 Via FTP Help

Well ok. Because bittorent is evil in this term because no one feels like rely sharing with a upload over 2kbs. I didnt wana sit there for 55 hours. So anway I go over to a ftp and just save that slackware 9.1 folder.

Since in on my XP box Theres a few thigns at hand. (only reason is because of cd burner)

Now anyways Since the ISO is based on 2 cd's should my burn be setup on 2 cd's or what?

I think what Psyman014 was saying is how he can create the iso cds from the packages he grab from the slackware 9.1 folder on the ftp server. Am i right?

I would assume that you need to burn it into two cds. Since both ISO image is about 670Mb.

Unless you want to burn them into a DVD. Which you need to find out even more about what you need to do.

As for packaging those packages into isos, it's not my playground. And don't intend to do so at the moment.

Slackware 9.1 disk1 is safely in my hard disk. having trouble getting disk2. In due time, in due time..
