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.

This one has probably been asked many times already, but I can't find anything on it...
I like to make things simple for me when I'm working, so I've added quite a few aliases in the bashrc file. Thing is, I can't figure out how to make the aliases and functions usable without having to restart X or sometimes even the computer. This is irritating considering I'm adding stuff into .bashrc almost every day. Is there some way to "refresh" the computer so that the new .bashrc gets loaded into memory? When I used Mandrake 10 it happened automagically, but not in Slackware current, which I'm using now.
Well, every eight year old in sweden knows that one third of this countrys population skipped over the big pool to "the land where chicken grow to the size of cows" a little over a hundred years ago O_o (a THIRD!!!) ^_^
Your second solution worked quite well, I must say Even made an alias to reload .aliases
Now I just have some wrestling with alsa and the gfx card left to do before this box is atleast as usable as my w1nd0ze box ^_^
