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 downloaded slackware 9.1 and tested it with md5 and there wernt any errors but once i burned it the cd had errors on it..I tryed downloading it over and ended up with the same result.Im using nero 6 then i went to "recorder" then to "burn image" then selected "Slackware-9.1-install-d1.iso" then hit bur..Both times the cd burned sucessfully though nero but ended up having errors
Where are you downloading it from? Have you tried a different download from a different site? Try www.linuxiso.org
I've burned mine from there without any problems. Also you'll probably need both iso images if you want KDE or Gnome installed.
Put your CD into a running machine's CDROM and see if the files are there, or if it's just a .iso on the CD. I've downloaded countless images from linuxiso.org and burned them with Nero without any problems.
