Steps for Slackware 10.1

I was just telling somebody about my adventure with Slackware 10.1. I don't have a working burner. My network is shoddy at this point. So here's the steps I did.

  • Download the boot/root floppy disk images

  • Download the software sets for slackware. (They have chucks of the OS and apps broken into software sets, like the basic OS is set A, games are set G...)

  • Download and set up an NFS server (demo), took 2 trys to get one that worked.

  • Unplug my windoze box from the Cable Modem and plug it into the hub with the Linux box

  • Boot off the floppies and give the installer my network settings

  • Reinstall cause I missed the Lilo step

And now I've got it running. It was a great learning experience.
