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.

I tried 4BAK and used a live CD version. Validated that Truecrypt 6.0a works. You should know that your distribution is the only live CD with the latest Truecrypt. Thanks for making it available to everyone. If I desire to include Bluefish as an added application, do I just obtain a tgz source and convert it to lzm just as the Slax website recommends and include it in the modules?
For to add a new driver you should to compile it and to create a slax module (lzm file). Here an example for this:Compiling by yourself. It's a french paper for compiling by yourself for Slax6 on EeePC
Here the step for this:
install 4bak on hard disk (use 4bak2hd script)
prepare the kernel sources
compile the drivers
make a Slackware package
make a LZM module
put the LZM module under «USBKey/4bak/modules» directory
Disk /dev/sda: 9726 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors/track

/dev/sda7 4929+ 6144 1216- 9767488+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 should be the boot partition and /dev/sda6 swap.
When I did my testing, I tried to install to a single (not counting swap) partition internal or external hard drive. In either case no grub files were installed. Does this mean the script is faulty or did I do something wrong? It seemed rather straight forward and I am familiar with gparted and sfdisk. I even tried variations of /dev/hdax or /dev/sdax when prompted. I was never successful, which came as a surprise because otherwise your distro was so slick! : )
