Which CD do I need?


Back in the golden age of Slackwares past, the entire installation could be completed from a single CD. Is 11 built upon this same model? Can I install everything that I need and have a working fluxbox WM from the first disk?

With CD #1 you have all but the KDE, KDEI T and TCL package series, and the XAP series is on disk 1 except the following packages which are on disk 2: gaim, gimp, gimp-help and seamonkey.
So if you don't need any of those, you can stick with the first CD.
