install slack from hd (no cd-drive, no usb)

Forums: 

I posted a how to install slackware from a hard drive only
(without using the cd-drive or a usb stick)

This requires:
1. a linux system (it can be a live one)
2. the iso file
3. an available partition for storing the contents of the iso
and some files that will help boot a slackware live system
that will launch the installation
4. an available partition for installing the new system
