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.

if it is slackware 10 then it is xorgconfig. slack 10 uses x.org instead of xfree86. the file is in /usr/X11R6/bin, but you should be able to type it at the command line as root. this will configure your x display so you can load your window manager
Thanks guys it was the x.org. I hope that they update that documentation the www.slackware.com/book. The xf86config and xf86setup are all over the place in the X Window section How'd you guys find out about it?
well for one thing it is listed on the slackware front page that version 10 comes with x.org, plus you get a lot of info browsing the forums and doing beta testing (i didnt do any beta testing but i do keep up with things)

Ah well if I guess if you didn't know what X.Org was it wouldn't mean too much
