If you don't want to install full unpacked SLAX, but you wish just to copy SLAX to your disk and start it as a LiveCD from there, just copy all files from the CD to some existing partition (filesystem doesn't matter here) and make it boot somehow, for example by using syslinux, lilo, loadlin (from DOS) or by using SLAX CD. The easiest way is to boot by using SLAX CD, copy all files and directories from the CD to C:\SLAX and boot from the CD with the following parameter:
i recently downloaded slax live-cd from the slax website. which can be found at www.linux-live.org.. and would like to install it to my hard-drive
i am currently using windows XP home, and would like to do it from here.
i recently created a partition 2GB's big (drive f:), to house slax, it is a fat32 filesystem as i only want to run the live-cd from my hdd.
the problem is slax doesnt provide a boot floppy or anything for that matter and i need help to boot it...
i would like to boot into the drive and run it as a live-cd as i do not have a cd-writer. he mentions using lilo, syslinux, loadlin. and i do not know how to use any of them, if anyone could help me, and show me how to use a program to boot into the os.. id appreciate it
