    Arrow boot without FDD and GRUB

    I want to install Slackware 10.2 on Amilo M1427G. But i havent FDD, and dont want to install GRUB on MBR. How can i boot Slack with CD or USB key ?

    Sure, you can boot it with the install CD, you just have to pass the right parameters to the boot screen. Check for full documentation.
    or USB key ?
    Sure, but only, and only if, you can boot from a USB drive. I'd say booting with the Slackware install CD is easier, specially since I've never tried USB booting.

    If you have acess to another computer plug the HDD into the other computer as /dev/hdb or as hda it dosen't mater just as long as you get fstab right
    install edit /etc/fstab and change every hdb to hda move it to hda
    boot from FDD configure and run lilo
    plug it into it's home computer configure
    a full install from HDD is fast realy fast like 15 menutes
