Slack 9.0- root + boot disks

I bought the slackware 9.0 4 CD set from a vendor online, but I don't think it comes with a root or boot diskeete.

1.) DO I have to have these disks to do the installation?

2.) Once I am done with the initial setup and installation does the OS take me directly to a command prompt so I can make these disks?

I am worried about being able to install the system and second being able to get into the system initially before I setup the boot loader.

If your computer can boot off cd's you don't need it. Judging by your signature, I won't even go into what you have to do if it doens't boot off cd's, because I am sure it does. Make sure you have cd booting enabled in your bios, insert install cd, follow the directions.
