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.

Hey guys, this is my first post, but I've read many helpful articles and I would like to thank the community for all your help.
I've had Slackware 12.0 for about a week now, I also have Ubuntu and openSUSE so I have some Linux experience. But I'm stuck on this, I can't disable tapping on Slackware 12.0, I've configured the xorg.conf on Ubuntu and openSUSE and disabled it. But it's not working on Slackware.
When I boot I notice these 2 lines for my touch pad:
Nov 25 11:08:01 darkstar kernel: input: ImPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /class/input/input3
Nov 26 11:13:22 Hubbard /usr/sbin/gpm: imps2: Auto-detected intellimouse PS/2
I think I may need to download the synaptics driver, but any help will be very much appreciated.
Also I'm also using Xfce but it doesn't have a battery or network monitor and when I go to add to panel it doesn't have a battery monitor or a network monitor do I just run the KDE one? if so do you know where it's located? or do I have to download a seperate one?
