Would it hurt to install the other two? It seems like it might give you extra things.
I would use the torrents
have you ever installed linux, slackware is one of the more harder distros to install if you don't know what you're doing.
and you only need to download the first two disks.
I tried booting up with the cd in the drive, but nothing happened, it started with windows.
CD2 and CD3? No. It wouldnt hurt. But CD3 I believe is source.
Change the boot order.
ie. floppy, cdrom, hard drive, rather than: hard drive, floppy, cdrom.
When you boot up your computer there should be a key you can hit ( ie. ESC, F10, DEL, etc. )
From there you need to poke around untill you find the section on changing the boot order.
If your boot order is correct though, your cd you burnt is bunk.
You mean junk right?
And, since my previous experiances(spelling?) with cd distros, I already checked that.
I'll try it again.
Fucken a, man, I am wasting so many cds on this. What am I doing wrong?
I download the first two torrents to the cd, and then write the files to the cd. I restart the computer, and then the screen goes black for a second, and a flashing underline on the top left hand corner of the screen keeps blinking. Then I wait for a second, and I start up with microsoft windows.
I checked to make sure the boot options where in the right order, and they where.
I honestly don't get this.
Well, I'm just gonna go with idiot proof ubuntu.
