    Unhappy Problems installing slackware

    When you try to install slackware off a hard disk you need to make 2 diskettes using dd or rawrite right? One is a boot disk and the other's a root disk. Am I the only one who's noticed that the color.bz root disk image is 2.24 MB? How the heck are you supposed to make an image of that on a floppy? I thought it might be a tgz file that has a color.tar inside with a number of images but that isn't true either. Any ideas? Also, I wouldn't mind installing in text mode if only I could find the text.gz file on any ftp (ftp.slackware.com doesn't have it).

    OK, I solved the problem by downloading the ISO and burning it to CD on my brand new CD-Burner. Thanks a lot anyway Ancile and Christina. BTW, Christina, why'd you delete your post?
