It would be a lot easier if you were more specific. What sort of things do you want to use Linux for?

Question

I have been learning how to program at application as well as Kernel level for Linux, but I have no idea about how to use various available tools with Linux eg yum, ktorent etc.. and all the system administration stuff.

First, speak English properly with no AOL speak. That way you come across better. You should read the 'LQ Rules'.

There are several good online references available to you;

'Rute Tutorial & Exposition', 'Linux Newbie Admin Guide' and 'Linux Command Guide' are just a few.

You should be aware of the 'Linux Documentation Project' which is a great documentation source.

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