what to download?(slackware)
I want to run slackware, but even understanding what I'm supposed to download is somewhat of a mystery to me. Sorry, I'm new to Linux, but I would like to learn!
I go to slackware.com/Get Slack/ USA/
and I'm given a bunch of mirror sites, that's fine. I pick one, then I'm given a directory of files(after I pick the 12.1 version). What exactly is supposed to go on the boot cds?
So I look up 'slackware download', and I get external sites which offer it. One of which, is called softpedia iirc, and its download link is 3.8 gbs. Comparing that to the directory of files the official site gives me, that's a lot more. Either way, I wasn't going to download it from a site which wasn't recommended by the official one, but was just trying to get some perspective.
Anyway, what am I supposed to download, and what's supposed to go on the 6 cds?
