Slackware Virtual Machine
Just in case anyone is interested, I have created a prebuilt Slackware 10.2 virtual machine for VMware, which you can run with their free VMware Player. It includes most packages that would be installed by default, including X and KDE. X Windows has been configured and the VMware tools are installed. Otherwise nothing has else been done and its ready for you to configure.

Go to to download it.

Unless you possess some extreme compression software, I think the link on that page is supposed to say 570 MB, not KB.

Yes, it should be MB and KB. I have updated the page. Good catch.

Many thanks, I was going to wait until Slackware 11.0 and then try and create an image, but I don't need to now.

Can the window size be changed to 1024x768 ?

Yes, you can change the Windows size by changing the X config. Be sure to select the vmware video adapter if needed, do not use your actual video card.
