Patrick Volkerding, the author of Slackware, authored this CDROM. The first CDROM contains the easy-to-install Linux system (kernel 2.0.30), source code and a live Linux file system. Recompile with complete source code! For the other CDROMs, Patrick carefully selected the best software from Internet Linux archives.
