Hi,

Another reference would be 'Rute Tutorial & Exposition' along with 'Linux Documentation Project'. The 'LDP' will provide all the documents you want to read.

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

BTW, Google and LQ searches will provide you with additional info.
