That Slackware version would be wonderful if we would be able to access it by using SSH from Windows, and maybe accessing the apache server running under Linux from Windows.

But what kind of packing do you need to do?
I've seen that we can just "Open" the main image file using VMWare, and it will work, so you'll just need to put all those files in a rar archive or something like that.

Am I wrong?

I am the guy who is taking care of all this. I had some problems
because I realised that the networking model would be a big trouble
for people who aren't behind a router, so I had to spend some time
figuring out how to achieve this.
I am still testing, and planning to contact Sina asking for a password
to upload the files shortly.
In the meantime, only a version of slackware fully functional, but
without any graphical stuf, to be used as a native developement of
daemons and server side programming will be available. The
speakupmodified thing will still take sometime to be completed. The
vmware scripts are ready, at least version 1.0. I will write
documentation for them, but I don't think I'll have time to learn how
to use the jsx installer. If you could pack the files for me I would
be gratefull.

I recall message threads about a VMWare tutorial, JAWS scripts, and a
Linux bundle that helps one try Linux GUI access with Orca on a Windows
machine.  The various components involved do seem complex, so a starter
kit for Linux newbies would definately be helpful.  What is the status of
these efforts?  Is anything ready for download by someone not experienced
with these technologies (though generally comfortable with Windows)?
