Where to get those darn boot files

It has been a while since I tried setting up Slackware 9 but I cannot find the correct boot disks to get my installation going. I have one ISO image, and cannot seem to find the rest of what I need.

Can anyone give me a link?

Are there 4 ISO install disks now

I read there is only one ISO and then you have to create the boot and root disks. Do I now use the 4 disks and boot directly from the ISO CD?

Thanks for the link by the way! When I was installing Gentoo most people told me to start with Slackware before I tried Gentoo but I found Gentoo to be relatively easy (after about 10 tries ).

Thanks again, Donald
