Hiya..
I have a problem that i carn't install slackware. I put the files on my dos partition (a1,a2...Ect) in a directory slack. Then in the linux setup i tell it to install to /dev/hda2 and then the source is /dev/hda1 and the directory is /slack. Then setup tells me that the files don't exist..
I have also just tried slack as the directory.

Please Can You all Help..

i had the same problem with an old slackware version. I think i solved it renaming the directory to slackware because the setup script asks the parent directory . Try to rename your directory and answer / for the source path.
