There is nothing to setup... you just place the ISO in the top dir of any partition.  You need an existing burned CD or ISO to boot from... then, when the installer comes up, it will see your ISO and list it as a install source.

Burning to the CD and installing from it is the only way I test new ISOs.

loaded 6.1 (automatic-usb-unetbootin) and it loaded fine. Playing CD now with smplayer. No skipping.  Firefox also.  Read the newspaper.  Configuring separate monitor worked well.

If someone asks and tells me specifically what to try, I will do so and report.

RC 4.6.1 std 32 on toshiba sat a100

smplayer appears to work ok out of box

abiword icon fixed for xfce menus

longer story

..played a full commercial cd plus random tracks on two others

also played commercial dvds plus a vhs converted to dvd

few each sample files in flv,mp4,mp3,wav,ogv,wma,mpg,avi

no issues so far except application defaults where not set but are now pretty much after test.

Icons  faenza-cupertino on wisker menu appears fine, and my fav

 however when the std application menu is added to the panel, at the moment,

 it is missing the following icons

settings/ firewall conf, java, privilage granting

accessories/ gkrellm, tuxcards

internet/ claws mail, gftp

system/ firewall config, gslapt package manager

note: the abiword icon is fixed for tango, high contrast and gnome

however: add system date and time to above list for tango and high contrast and additionally mail reader for gnome

missing wisker menu icons can be confirmed as already posted. sys D&T for tango and high conrast in addition to mail reader for gnome

I do not have the solution but thought it may help to clarify the xfce wisker and std menu icon state

if not an issue for others this is the case on this laptop for previous and current fresh install, I,m in no hurry just playing

Thanks very much for all the work, this is a great version of slackware and highly underrated

Those of you with the USB device problems... Please test out RC4.6.1 and report back.  Another thing to test is MPlayer on this one... make sure it works out of the box, it should no longer require the openal package.

For those of you with the icon problem, please disable all default repositories in slapt-getrc, and add unstested... then run 'slapt-get -u; slapt-get --upgrade'.  This should upgrade your whiskermenu to 1.5.0 (now building.. (after the ISO was built)).  See if that does anything.
