|   |                    You'll find bash-4.0 and linux kernel
|   |                    packages here. We considered it a little early to
|   |                    replace the versions in the main tree but these
|   |                    may be useful if your hardware requires a newer
|   |                    kernel or you want some of the features of the
|   |                    next generation bash.  These packages should not
|   |                    be considered supported or necessarily secure, but
|   |                    may still useful.
|   |
|   `--- source/         This directory contains source code for the 
|                        packages in testing.
`-- usb-and-pxe-installers  These are alternate installers useful
    |                       for large-scale Linux deployment or if
    |                       your machine can boot PXE and/or USB but
    |                       not an optical disc.  For PXE, the initrd.img
    |                       file in isolinux/ is also required.
    |-- pxelinux.cfg_default
    `-- usbboot.img       The Slackware installer for bootable USB flash.
