ZipSlack is a special edition of Slackware Linux that can be installed
onto any FAT (or FAT32) filesystem with about 100 MB of free space. It
uses the UMSDOS filesystem and contains most of the programs you will
need. This means that you do not need to repartition your hard disk if
you already have DOS or Windows installed. ZipSlack installs into a
directory on your DOS filesystem. It can also be installed to and booted
from a Zip disk.
This distribution is ideal for people who don't have a lot of hard
disk space, do not have a fast Internet connection to download the entire
distribution, or who want a Linux distribution they can carry around on
a Zip disk.
