slackware 10.1 install w/o floppy?
Ok, im about to take the plunge and install slackware 10.1 on a fat32 partition (ill reformat it reiser preferabbly, or ext3) ive been using as a win swap (dont ask ;) ) Im currently dling all 4 iso's, but in reading a little im worried im gonna need a floppy drive for the boot and root disks (still a little confused on that to be honest), and i dont even have one in my pc anymore (i could probably dig one out of my closet if i really need to). Also, Im going this route, because i have suse 9.2pro now, and though im very happy with it, i feel kinda jipped outta really learning linux and bash. rpms and yast and the like are great, but they're way to easy to fall back on, and i wanna know this the way i knew dos 5.0 back in the day! The sys im running now uses grub for my bootloader, and has suse and win (for gaming) as the options. Im hoping i can install this and just have slackware added to that list. I also have another pc in the house that will prolly have suse installed (though possibly xp, since its more the family 'puter) , and im hoping to set slackware up as a LAMP server, again, for learnings sake. So, to get to my question(s) ;) , 1. do i NEED the fdd to install slackware, and 2. any general suggestions on this whole process, knowing what my goals are? Thanks so much in advance, and i look forward to joining our ranks :)
