Re: tlug-digest V1 #51

Saturday I picked up New Rider's "Building a Unix Internet Server" which 
includes Slackware 2.01.  Spent sat. night configuring it on a spare 200mb 
disk.  Works good.  Ran into trouble when it didn't have a driver for my IDE 
NEC cd-rom (hah, teaches me to buy IDE stuff ;) ), anyways, I wasn't 
interested in making up mega floppies from the cd-rom in dos mode, then 
installing from the floppies.  Remind me to buy a Linux supported SCSI 
cd-rom next week when I am in Calif.

In the 386BSD setup program, there is an option to install from packages in
a FTP server. I only wish Slackware's setup had a similar option, so I
wouldn't have to FTP all the disks prior to installation. BTW, right now
I'm FTPing the new Slackware 3.0 ELF.
