Slackware 8.0 from floppies?


Is it possible to get Slackware 8.0 floppy images? My CDRW is being extremely stupid and isn't functioning. Thanks.

Definately

IIRC, most (if not all) slackware packages in the default disk sets are < 1.44MB. I can't imagine your CDR being dumber than any 1.44MB disk, but you're free to try it. :-)

I would reccomend only setting up a bare minimum system and FTPing the rest, disk installs are not fun.
