Many of the ftp sites don't offer the iso files for Slackware anymore. If
you're getting them over a cable or DSL (or faster) connection then
bittorrent is definitely the way to go. However, if you do use bittorrent,
please try to leave it running for a while after you finish your download
so that some others can get the files from you and so that a large burden
is not placed on a few individuals.
If, on the other hand, you are on a modem, you might consider an
alternative means of getting the files. I have them on CD and would be
happy to mail them to you. Or, you could purchase them from
