Hey all,

Just something I noticed....

http://www.slackware.com/book/

I never read this nor did I know it was available

I love it. It is something I think everyone should read. Even if they don't use Slackware. It has a ton of useful info about Linux period.

I feel like a fool now I should have read this earlier...

Later.

Great book, but I wish it were available in formats other than just HTML (like ps, dvi, or pdf).

You're welcome Steve. I'll echo what Whitehat said, it's an excellent resource. Might there be a chance to add Slack to your distro list? Time will tell. -- J.W.

Now there is the new, and official The Revised Slackware Book Project

Also available in your favorite flavors:
  • Split HTML
  • Single-page HTML
  • DocBook Source
  • Post script
  • PDF
or you may order a printed version from the Slackware store if you prefer.

Be sure to also order the upcoming (really soon now) Slackware-10.2 release, or better yet, purchase a Slackware subscription so that you will (1) always get the official CD sets, and (2) contribute to the Slackware Linux Project, which is also available for free!
