after trying with vmware, i see installing slackware was going to be too much to do that way, so i tried it with loop back. i typed in all the following commands:

mkdir -p /dos
mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /dos
cd /dos
mknod /dev/loop0 b 7 0
mkdir /INSTALL
mount -o loop /dos/install.iso /INSTALL (my iso is named install1.iso)

but once i get to the last line, it says install1.iso not found. the file is in my C:, so i dont understand whats going on.
