Question Does Slackware Have a Minimal Install


I am looking to get Slackware 13 x64 installed. I have never tried Slackware out. Well, I think I tried it back when it was v8. or something. Does Slackware have a netinst option? I only see a huge DVD ISO which has most likely a bunch of junk on there I don't want or need. I just want a minimal Slackware system up and running. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Look at 'Minimal System' method as to what packages you should install to have a base system.

You can grab a minimal ISO image containing only the kernels and the installer, http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/slackboot/mini/13.0/ ... or use the usbboot.img file ( http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackwar...xe-installers/ ) and a spare USB stick to boot the installer from USB.
Then install Slackware from a web- or ftp server.
