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.

I am running Moonshine with the latest kernel and want to make a slax distro with my prefered modules. Allegedly all that needs to be done is adding the .mo files to the /modules/ directory. What is the easiest way to accomplish this?
I am assuming that I can burn the iso to a cd, copy the cd onto a directory on my hard drive, add the file, and then burn that as a new .iso. Thats how I would do it in Winslows anyway. I read somewhere there was an editiso command but no manual and no command in my distro.
If one was to do what I suggested, what program in linux would I use to make the new iso image?
I realize that this doesn't really answer your question, but I would like to point out that in your case, burning a multisession CD might also be an option: Just burn the original ISO with 'cdrecord -multi ...' and create a supplementary ISO containing your modules by following the instructions at http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO...TO.html#ss4.18
That way, you can keep the 'clean' ISO and your own contributions separate, which ought to make things easier to manage as new versions of Slax and/or the modules are released.
Thanks for all the help, I didn't think k3b could could write to an existing directory on a multisession but apparently it can. I got it to copy and added my files but now the disk isn't bootable so I think I am just going to open a thread in the slackware forum for help on the specific problem.
