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.

A little about me.
I have dabbled in a fair amount of technogical solutions, from building / upgrading PC's and laptops to raspberry pi's.
I currently run mint on a Toshiba, xp, ultimate edition oz with oz unity on my of x110 netbook, I should mention for the last year and some I have been running arch linux off that netbook also (from a 16g as card) I love arch, but only 30% of its community.
I am currently searching for a distro that is more true to linux, in thatvsearch I have been led to slackware.
My goal is to take the barebones iso, install from the ground up. This will give me a true feeling of how it works. I do not expect to be posting very much if at all untill I am satisfied with my installation, or forbid I run into a problem I cannot google my way out of.
I look forward to sharing what I learn on this journey.
And if by mistake I necrobump a post or too I hope you will be more forgiving than others have.
Slackware is the official Slackware forum here at LQ. Be sure to look at the links in my sig to find some very useful information for Slackware. I have been using Slackware for a long time now and still learn something everyday.
