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.

Sometimes I unplug my regular network from provider box so I can do...

Too many times you freely grab my excited possibilities and open-considerations only to say, nope, not for me. Why? Oh, darn, you see something different than you are used to. Oh, my! So sorry to inconvenience you and your stubborn, stuck, dug-in, overpaid, under-produced, not-so-safe system.
These are the settings I use on Google Chrome, however you may go more stricter or looser with your security settings depending on your needs. I tend to disable any passwords saved, suggestions for searches, etc. Also, you can remove a lot of junk by using a hosts file (see the Hosts File Hack) which will disable banners, ads, etc.
The current version available from SlackBuilds.org is google-chrome-9.0.597.84, but since the snapshot...
In a default Slackware 13.1 installation, you create a root user with a root password. Normally, I create a regular user who is a member of the following groups: audio, cdrom, floppy, netdev, plugdev, power, users, video and wheel. The thought being that only members of the "wheel" group should be allowed to su (switch user) to root to do administrative work. Here's how it works:
