Which CD's do I need?


Hi guys,

I was about to download Slackware 10 ISO's to load onto my WinXP system and have it dual boot, although there are 4 CD's in total.

Are all 4 CD's needed? I want to install KDE / GNOME etc apps on as well.

So would that require all 4 CD's?

Thanks

packages that Pat V. thought you might like...........

Sweet thanks. So CD1 and CD2 will get me up and running with the main packages.

Yeah thats right. I have been using Slack for a while now and have never needed to use CD3 and CD4.
