ah, that kind of answers my question. if the tarballs are configured for
slackwares installation, that's not what i'm lookin for. i found the
stuff on one of the sunsite mirrors.

err, i hate to swear online, but i'm usin gozilla to leech the files. so
it's just
as good i haven't started to download the slackware stuff. i'll goto
or freshmeat if they store the files.
