Slackware 11

October 6, 2006 – 11:19 pm | by Bill

With the recent release of Slackware 11, I decided to download and install the dvd iso using Microsoft Virtual PC 2004. I got a copy of Virtual PC for free from Microsoft and my school, so I figured I would use it. I go ahead and download it, and install it, and upon trying to load the .iso, it spits out an error about it not being a valid CD image. Apparently it does not like dvd isos.

I go ahead and download VMware, the competitor of Virtual PC. After I installed it, I got a tip from an irc chatroom that Parallels has a version for Windows, and that it’s better then VMware and Virtual PC. So I download Parallels and install it, and set it up.

Parellels RC 2.2 seems to be working great. Before tonight I had never manually configured linux partitions before, so I learned some stuff. :) All in all, it’s fairly easy.

Going to go finish installing Slackware 11, I may post back later with screenshots. =)
