 Slackware has added a PXE server to its installer [[http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/out-of-the-box-pxe-install-server-in-slackware-13-37/|since the 13.37 release]]. It is intended to provide an easy method for network installations of Slackware, provided you have one spare computer with a network card (//not a wireless card!!!//) This article describes the procedure for a network installation using the built-in PXE server, using the Slackware 13.37 installation media as an example (but it will work for later versions of Slackware just as well): Slackware has added a PXE server to its installer [[http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/out-of-the-box-pxe-install-server-in-slackware-13-37/|since the 13.37 release]].

 +===== Requirements =====

 +
 +A Slackware DVD or bootable USB stick, containing a //complete set// of Slackware package directories. A net-boot "mini-ISO" or a bootable Slackware CDROM are not sufficient because they do not contain all Slackware packages. The PXE server in the installer is not able to use an external package source - all packages have to be present on the boot media.
