 You might have noticed that the "​-P"​ parameter does not accept a size parameter. ​ This is because the unencrypted container file is created as a '​sparse'​ file that starts at zero size and is allowed to grow dynmically to a maximum of 90% of the initial free space on the Linux partition of the USB stick. You might have noticed that the "​-P"​ parameter does not accept a size parameter. ​ This is because the unencrypted container file is created as a '​sparse'​ file that starts at zero size and is allowed to grow dynmically to a maximum of 90% of the initial free space on the Linux partition of the USB stick.

 +==== Using the Live OS to install Slackware to hard disk ====
 +
 +
 +All variants of Slackware Live Edition with the exception of the XFCE variant contain a script "​setup2hd",​ a tweaked version of the regular Slackware setup program.\\ The "​setup2hd"​ script allows you to install the Slackware release on which the Live OS is based, to the computer'​s local hard disk.  You must boot the Live OS first, and then start "​setup2hd"​ either in an X Terminal in your graphical Desktop Environment (aka Runlevel 4), or from the console in Runlevel 3.  The fact that you can start "​setup2hd"​ from a graphical terminal means that during installation,​ you can continue browsing, listening to music, watching video, reading an e-book or whatever else makes you pass the time.
