Slackware is also available on CD-ROM. Most Slackware CD-ROMs simply contain a copy of the files as they appear on the FTP archive sites, as described above. Therefore, if you have a Slackware CD-ROM, you have all of the files that you need.
You will have to create a boot and root floppy from the files on the CD-ROM. See Section 188.8.131.52.1, above, for a discussion on the available boot and root disk images.
First, decide which boot and root disk images you will use. They should all be on the CD-ROM. Below, we will describe how to create these floppies.
