slack 9 boot from cd-rom?
Quick question: If I download the slackware 9 ISOs, can I boot from the CDs or do I need a boot floppy?

For the downloading, there is only one install CD for Slack 9. The iso image is a bootable image if your BIOS is able to support it. It is also requires a 700 MByte CDR to fit. You will not know until you try, unless you tried before with Slack 8.1 and know that it does not. If it does not boot then you can create a Smart boot manger floppy disk from the image on the CD, or create a boot disk and a couple of root disks.
