As per this thread:

Crome OS used hf, Armedslack uses sf.

End of story for me at the moment, as all I wanted was to check if it
was trivial to run the Slackware installer directly from Chrome OS.
Now I will go on with unpacking the miniroot onto a external
partition, chrooting into it and adding packages with slackpkg.

I have already generated a kernel partition on the flash drive, the
final step will be to check if the whole thing boots at all.
