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.

command to gui
Running slackware 9.1 and fluxbox, I usually have been doing things from the command line. However, i would like to get a graphical browser on my computer thats lightweight. I have used konqueror in the past, but its awful, slow and buggy.
So if someone would reccomend a browser for me (just to view stuff on my computer) i would appreciate it. Also, if you have a site or place that i can easily find cool linux software, that would be cool too.
depends what your computer is for or if its a laptop, for my laptop i use ion as teh WM and worker as the FM (its real great for me has everyhitng i need, but looks like shit if you using a desktop, all teh csmetic customization there is is the colors, lol)
