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.

however, when you install them, if you go into '/etc/rc.d/' they init scripts are not marked as executable and therefore don't start at boot time. not sure why this is but you only have to chmod +x them. anyway, you've solved the prob, but that's a note for anyone else....
Glad you got it figured out. If you hadn't already seen the Wiki, I was going to point you in that direction. It appears you already found it.
It's just personal opinion, but it's generally best to install DLG on a clean Slackware system (e.g. without a previous FRG install) and vice-versa. However, if everything seems to be working okay, then I guess there are no worries.
We'd love to include NetworkManager with the 2.14.0 release of Dropline GNOME. It's a great tool. Unfortunately, there are some problems in Slackware's dhclient, but suggestions have been sent to Slackware.com to improve this. Additionally, I believe that there need to be some added dbus bindings (which are missing from Slackware's package) in order to make things work.
For anyone else who is interested in making NetworkManager work on DLG, FRG, Gware, etc. - please see this wiki.
