Slackware DVD iso installer?

I was wondering if anyone knows if a full DVD iso installer for the latest version of Slackware OS exists.

I went to the site and saw a four CD install version. But its just i despise the idea of using 4 CD's to install a operating system. Plus its cheaper as a Verbatim CD cost 20p each and i get Taiyo Yuden DVD-R's for 26p each. So its not only easier more efficient but much cheaper too.

So can i ask is it available on a DVD iso install.

If so does anyone have a URL or bittorrent to download it.

Thank You

There is no official DVD ISO image of Slackware. There are several sites offering unofficial ISO images for a DVD version of Slackware 10.2 though.

A Torrent link:


Nothing you would have found too with 1 second of Googling by the way ...

You don't need all 4 CDs.

You only need the first CD to install the system, and the second one if you want KDE.
