on slack the /usr/bin/install is a symlink to another program. On one of my systems (Slack 3.2 / 3.6 something) its called 'ginstall'

You could grab it from www.darkface.pp.se/~j2/ginstall.tgz  however i do think it has other dependencies.

Excellent, it worked straight off, just installed it and put in a symlink.
