Need help with installing from just a USB.


I'm trying to install Slackware onto a netbook with no CD or floppy drives. I have 2 flash drives. One of them can hold the three .iso files that I need for the installation, and the other has DSL in case I need to do some file movement. The computer can boot from a USB, I already checked the BIOS. I probably won't have an internet connection from where I will be installing from. Can anybody tell me how I would install Slackware from that?

Hi,

Welcome to LQ and SlackwareŽ!

You say that you may not have an Internet connection but do you have a LAN? If so you could do a install via a 'NFS' connection with a local machine as the source of your iso(s).
