How do I install Slackware on a DVD - not a Slackware installer


I want to burn a DVD that has a (nearly) complete installation of Slackware so that I can boot off of it and run all my Slackware programs on a Windoze system. I hope this is obvious that I've missed it. I'm in a difficult spot, with limited time to connect.

I haven't tested it myself.

Thanks. I'm trying to download it now, sitting outside at the closed university using its wifi. It seems to have stalled early. I think they throttle guests, even when there's so little U traffic. I found the old SlackwareLiveCD project on SourceForge (last updated in 2013). It kernel-panicks when I try to run it. So does my backup disk. I think something else is going on.

Later: it worked, at least to boot. I still haven't fixed the target disk
