Obtaining The Software Sets :

Slackware Linux was first released before CD-ROMs became a standard in systems and before fast Internet connections were cheap. Because of this, the distribution was broken down into software sets. Each set contains a different group of programs. This allowed for someone to get the Slackware Linux distribution quickly. For example, if you know you don’t want the X Window System, just skip all of the X software set. <!– Though most people today obtain Slackware Linux on CD-ROM, the distribution can still be installed by making a pile of floppies. The listing below describes the different software sets.You can find these software sets in the slakware subdirectory from within the Slackware Linux distribution. For example, for the A sets there are subdirectories called a1, a2, a3, and so on.–>
