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 i was wondering how i can get the gnome gui for slackware 11. I mean i downloaded swaret installed it, ran the upgrade to get the packages but i dont see gnome desktop environment. how can i get.
GNOME isn't part of Slackware any more. You can use one of the GNOME distributions for Slack to get a GNOME desktop: Freerock, Dropline, GWARE. Or, you could attempt to download the source and build "regular" GNOME for yourself (or even use one of their build tools).
Where can i get the source i've googled Gnome source code and found nothing. Also i wanted to know how hard is it to build Gnome from scratch i mean i have no programming background but i am looking for something that will keep me busy for a while so i would like to try this.
If you go to gnome.org, there's a link that says "Download". That page gives you info about their build tools and links to downloads for the tarballs. There is some info somewhere about the order in which to build packages if you want to do it completely by hand, but they don't recommend it.
