Welcome to Slackware 10.1!

Slackware 10.1 is a complete distribution of the Linux operating system.

This version contains the 2.4.29 Linux kernel, plus recent versions of these
(and many more) software packages:

- C compiler             gcc-3.3.4 and gcc-3.4.3
- Binutils               2.15.92.0.2
- GNU C Library          glibc-2.3.4
- X Window System        X11R6.8.1 from X.Org.
- KDE                    3.3.2
- Xfce                   4.2.0

For installation instructions, see the file 'Slackware-HOWTO'.

These are some of the important files and directories found on the Slackware
FTP site:

   ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-10.1/

If you're reading this on a CD-ROM, these directories will probably be
split across several discs.
