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.

Having spent two days trying to get slackware to work sucessfully with no errors on starting up, and so that all the hardware works, i now have a system the boots well, can see and use all the hardware satisfactorily, and performs basic functions of web browsing, email, and text editing.
now i want to set up the box to run as an ftp server (i would also like to get apache up and running and also an email system of some kind, but the ftp is most important for now)
having read quite a bit about proFTPd, i decided to go with that as the ftp server, so did some more research, and found a tutorial on installing it, on this very site.
however i am technically inexperienced in the use of linux, and although i followed the instructions in it as closely as i could, i got it wrong. ive since tried quite a bit to get it working, but i cant, so if anyone can suggest an ftp server that is easy to set up on slackware then can they post it, or if not can someone walk me through the setting up of proFTPd cos i cant do it.
