Post Slackware 8.1 Book


Anyone know of a print version of a good online free e-book. For slackware. The installation is so hard I cant figure it out. Will someone please help me. I need a book that in-dept shows how to install along with setting up the gui and setting up alll drivers and setting it up as a server.

Sorry to say, but if the simple instructions on
the website don't do it, a book probably won't
either.

Besides that, try a search on www.amazon.com.

Get a most recent book that comes up with
a search for Slackware, the installation process
hasn't changed all that much over the last three
versions.

Cheers,
Tink

The short answer is there isn't anything more recent
than the slackware book on the slackware website.

However, the basic ideas for partitioning, networking,
X and so on haven't changed, just a few details have.

Use wget to grabthe book.

Cheers,
Tink

The slackware book on the slackware sight is good. But I need a printer friendly version. And as far as buying books goes I decided Im going to the book store today. You guys tell me that the O'Reilly's make about the best books around. But if you guys know of an online book that is printer friendly dont be hesitant to tell me...
