 The latest versions of Slackware Linux are distributed on DVD or CD media, but Slackware can be installed in a variety of other ways. We're only going to focus on the most common method - booting from a DVD - in this book. If you don't have a CD or DVD drive, you might wish to take a look at the various README files inside the ''​usb-and-pxe-installers''​ directory at your favorite Slackware mirror.

The files there are the best source of information available for such boot methods. The latest versions of Slackware Linux are distributed on DVD or CD media, but Slackware can be installed in a variety of other ways.
