Slackware Ftp-install

I have tried various manners to ftp-install Slackware 9. I am attempting to do so with the floppies; bare.i, install1 & install2 (plus network). All go well until I reach source media selection; there simply is not present option to install from ftp (or http). This despite loading my eth0 module. I have searched the site and haven't found relevant how-to's. Will appreciate some tips on what I missed. Thanks.

i tried the same thing, but i believe slackware just doesnt support the ftp installation. i was going to look into red hats boot disk because i know that it allows that, but i think id be getting in over my head. maybe changing the bootdisk.img could help.
