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.

Since 13.0, Slackware has an official x86_64 port. There is no grub package by default, and if you simply try to install it, you will get an error. A lot of users, including me, prefer grub over lilo.
It is not so much difficult to install grub on Slackware64, and I finally managed to do it. So it I thought it will be helpful for those who are new to Slackware64 and wants the old grub back. Hence the guide. Hope this will help you guys.

My post-installation routine is nearly done and the laptop is feeling like a slightly faster, more modern version of an old familiar home.
The major disappointment is Wicd. I can't seem to get it to connect to...
