Welcome to the new Linux Foundation Forum!

install slack from hd (no cd-drive, no usb)

I posted a how to install slackware from a hard drive only

(without using the cd-drive or a usb stick)

This requires:

1. a linux system (it can be a live one)

2. the iso file

3. an available partition for storing the contents of the iso

and some files that will help boot a slackware live system

that will launch the installation

4. an available partition for installing the new system

    That is a nice guide for installation from local files, Can you modify your guide to include how get lilo to start the installer?

    I will be posting a guide to PXE (network based diskless) installation of multiple OSs and utility apps including setting up the PXE menu for each item on my blog shortly.

    I haven't used lilo for years and I don't have it installed on my
    system.
    I suppose I could figure out the syntax for the menu entry but then I couldn't test it on my system.
