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 don't know much about linux... my friends use it so im also trying to use it. i got the slackware 10.1 disc and installed it with no problems! my computer (compaq notebook 100) is bad/slow and i also prefer a minimal system with no good looking or anything like that, so i installed only the first disc with no kde or gnome, and im using... xfce or whatever as my windows_something, my internet conection is working! i used ping and i got a reply.
now to get started i will need a file browser, i remember that when my friends in the past installed slackware in this computer they installed "xfe" which is very good because it is simple and does everything! i don't know where i can get and how to install it, could anyone guide me?
1- i have no internet browser installed, i can use microsoft windows to get the file and then with slackware linux go to the place where the file is to install
2- i know NOTHING about how to install it
after this i want to install mozilla firefox, where should i install it? i mean, in what folder/where? and xfe? thanks
xfe requires fox, and neither are available as tgz's from http://www.linuxpackages.net for 10.1 yet ... I don't know
whether fox requires MORE stuff to be installed prior to
xfe ... I'd suggest trying mc in an xterm ;)
It's not really hard, it's just a bit more effort than doing
an "installpkg xfe-<blurb>.tgz" .... I don't have fox installed,
so can't tell you what it needs, it may be just the two things
you need to compile from source...
