 Slackware Linux distribution 1.0.2
Announcing version 1.0.2 of the Slackware distribution of Linux.

Slackware is a full-featured distribution of the Linux operating system
designed for computers with a 3.5", 1.44M boot drive. The Slackware release
strives for ease of installation, and as much of the software as possible
has been preconfigured - greatly increasing user "slack."

These disk sets are currently available:

A: Base system.
E: Emacs 19.19
F: All the most current Linux related FAQ lists. (HIGHLY recommended)
G: Games. Currently, this only contains a port of the "fortune" program
   set up to print a random fortune when you log in. I'm open to suggestions
   for other stuff to add when I find time.
Q: This is sort of an alpha-stuff series that may change and/or disappear
   at any time. Currently it contains source for the Linux kernel .99pl13
   alpha, and two .99pl13 alpha zImages, one for IDE and one for SCSI.
