Get ZipSlack

Which files do I get?

ZipSlack comes with the full Slackware Linux distribution. It is in the /zipslack directory. At a minimum you should get the main ZipSlack file:

zipslack.zip

If you plan on booting ZipSlack from a boot disk, you will want to download the boot disk file:

bootdisk.img

The bootdisk.img file contains a generic Linux kernel with support for many SCSI adapters as well as parallel port Zip drive support.

If you are going to be making the boot disk from a DOS system, you will need this program:

RAWRITE.EXE

You will also need the additional swap file support if your computer has only four megabytes of RAM. In that case, make sure you get:

fourmeg.zip

The other files in the directory consist of various documents, READMEs, FAQs, and Changelogs. Be sure to look at those if this is your first time using ZipSlack.

Where do I get the files?

Since ZipSlack is part of the Slackware Linux distribution, you can go to many of the FTP sites where Slackware is available. It is also included on the Slackware CDs published by Slackware Linux and available from The Slackware Store. See our Get Slack page for more information about getting Slackware Linux.
