Unhappy Problems of downloading Slackware 9.1


I was attempting to download Slackware 9.1.

Firstly, i was wondering how many discs of Slackware 9.1? I know traditionally slackware has only one disc. On some sites i found 9.1 has 2 discs but on other sites it is 4 discs. Which should i download?

Anywar, I could not download those CD image files.
Could anyone tell me where there is downloadable slackware 9.1?

Thanks.

http://www.slackware.com/getslack and choose a mirror. From the same site:

Slackware 9.1 Installation ISO (disc 1)
Slackware 9.1 Installation ISO (disc 2, GNOME/KDE/KDEI, /extra, /testing, live rescue disc)
Slackware 9.1 ISO disc 3 (Sources part 1, Slackware book)
Slackware 9.1 ISO disc 4 (Sources part 2, ZipSlack, /pasture)

All you really need for an install is the first one unless you want GNOME/KDE.

I have that URL, and i actually have tried some of them. It seems some of the sites on the list do not have those images, while those who have the images cannot download...

anyway, I will keep on trying the other sites on the list.

And, thank for explaining the content of thos discs.

No problem. Good luck. I find that http://www.slackware.at is pretty fast, but might be different for you.

Hey guys, that was helpful. Thanks you guys.

by the way, do you know any software that can burn iso file onto a CD?
as i know, it cannot be done by simple copy&paste, right?

hi whitefox,
I am in Singapore. I have Slackware 9.1, but only the first 2 CDs.
send me a mail (thick_guy_9@gawab.com) if you need a set.
To burn ISO files (using Windows) you can download and use burnforfree.

It is a shareware. But for ISO files, it is great. Nero is bad. There are no fancy wizards.
later..
