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.

- boot RH
- mount your Slack -part. ( mkdir /slack ; mount -t ext3 /dev/hdxx /slack)
- edit the lilo.conf file ( probably in /etc ) as follows
add a new linux section :
image = /slack/boot/vmlinuz <---fill in the name of the kernel-image in the /slack/boot )
root = /dev/hda4 <-----fill in the / partition of Slack.
label = Slackware <---the boot-menu item
save the file and run " #lilo "
should say smth. like : added redhat; added Slackware; added windows.
make a boot floppy before you do that. ( #mkrescue )
Never mind, I got it. Thank you very much, especially egag. I really appreciate the help. This LILO thing will take some getting used to, but then again, if I let that scare me, I would still be using Windows. So thanks a bunch.
