I agree with keeping some reference material in hand. If you have another machine that has internet access, Shilo's site helped me the most.

Here's a couple other sites that have helped me a lot. They are all useful, but some more than others.

Linux Home Networking is based on Red Hat but there's lots of good information there. Some of the commands will be different, but gives a good background.

Control-Escape I've only read a little on this and it was helpful. It's written for newbies, so is pretty good for that.

Use Linux At Home is good for the newbie that really won't be digging in deep.

Of course, there's Slackware Tips & Tricks, SlackFAQ and of course the Revised Slackbook Book. These final ones are great help.
