New to Linux


I am new to Linux and I am looking for a book for a beginners guide on Slackware. Can anyone help me out?

Cheers

Keep in mind that there are other books that are for Linux in general. Most of that book is system administration tasks such as how to install and configure Slackware and services. To actually use the system, you'll need to learn a lot of things that are not Slackware specific. That should get you started though.

"linux in a nutshell"---O'Reilly

Also, a really good resource is TLDP (The Linux Documentation Project). One thing to get there is "Bash Guide for Beginners" by Machtelt Garrels.

BUT--Don't read too much before actually doing---I find that the best way to learn is to "push buttons". When I can't figure out how to do something, then I go looking for it in the book.
