Is the ISO bootable? Is your bios set to boot from cdrom? If all else fails, use the bootdisk and the 2 rootdisk images from the ftp site.

You burned it as an image?
Did checksum?

Look in the isolinux/sbootmgr directory on the CD. Slack 9 now includes a disk image for Smart Boot Manager. At least, the iso image that I downloaded has it. Write the image to a disk and boot the disk. It might support your system where the BIOS may not.

Explain to us how you burnt the iso to disk.
You might also want to read the burning instructions at linuxiso.org.

9.0 Booting

Am temporarily using my boot floppy to kick start boot. Without the floppy (mbr lilo) fills the screen with a repetitive series of 9949494949494949494s. The floppy gets me to the < DOS ~ Linux > prompt and LILO takes over.

If you can boot with your CD and get into a console, do a < cat BOOTING.TXT | more > and read their suggestions therein. Obviously this was/is a known issue with 9.0 IMHO. Am digesting this data in (on my test box) right now, thought of you and decided to share.

This was a non problem in 8.1.01. At least 9.0 found my Soundblaster PCI 128 and configured it during installation, no more /dev/dsp failure messages. Sure wish they'd put CUPS on the CD.

HTH

Look in the estras directory. It should be there, on your slackware cd:

slackware-9.0/extra/cups-1.1.18/

9.0 Boot Fixed

After a long day and my previous post, thought further as I retired and got up and looked at ' lilo.conf ' sure enough it had ' boot = /dev/fd0 " then forgot to run lilo after I vi'ed it. It's Hell to get old,
will don the dunce cap for remainder of day.

Re (figadiablo) CUPS: it's not on (in) my third party CD, will wait for my Slack package NBD.
