Is there a netinstall for Slackware Linux? If so, where? I cannot seem to find one on their mirrors. Why not? Am I looking on the wrong mirror?

I need a netinstall because I'm making a netinstall DVD with the netinstalls for 10 different Linux distributions - and there isn't enough room.

It looks like the Slackware USB boot image contains everything you need to do a network install. You can find it on the mirrors in slackware-current/usb-and-pxe-installers/ (you might want to read README_USB.TXT too).

If you're using something like memdisk to boot the ISO images, you might need to do a little more work to get the image into the right format, but that should be fairly straightforward.
