Should I travel the whole ftp://...pub/.../slackware-12.0 tree to download it?

Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I find dir Slackware-12.0 is the parent of a three-level deep subtree (of course there is Slackware-12.0.iso too). And I know of no other way of downloading than clicking the files themselves (leaves). Due to the hugh amount of work involved in such a procedure, there must be some other way to download. Do you know which one? Thanks.
Hi: I see I've got a great many options before me. Now, I almost always tend towards the simplest and less elaborate. The simplest the system, the greater part of it that I shall come to understand and govern.
One more remote file copy program to add to the list. Thanks.
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...ware-12.0-iso/ I thought is a directory were I would find the iso images of slack 12.0. To my surprise, however, I only find .asc and .md5 files there. E.g., slackware-12.0-install-d3.iso.asc and slackware-12.0-install-d3.iso.md5 are there. OK, I need these files (I want to download slack 12.0 disk 3). But where is the ISO image?
My English isn't too good either. Thanks for the link. By the way, is it sufficient to verify the file with the .md5 file or should I make use of the .asc too? All I know is the .asc is a newer and more secure way of checking file integrity.
