Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

After installing SLiM, the only two changes I make are turning off the X Servers listening on Port 6000 TCP for incoming connections for use in Remote X-Windows Sessions (with the -nolisten tcp flag) and changing the default SLiM theme to use the Slackware theme.
Get the SlackBuild Tarball for Slackware 13.1 from SlackBuilds.org. It will be for ufw version 0.27. Go to https://launchpad.net/ufw and download the ufw-0.30.1.tar.gz source code. After untarring the SlackBuild tarball, open the ufw.SlackBuild with a text editor and change the version to 0.30.1, like so:
