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.

Hello, I have just installed Slackware on my laptop, and whenever I enter the command "startx" it goes though the start up then returns to the text based GUI and says "Fatal Server Error: failed to intilize core devices" I was really wondering what if anyone knows something I could do. I have tried to reinstall multiple times. Also I know it works on my laptop as I have run Slackware on it before. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.
list me the output of /var/log/xfree86.0.log or xorg.0.org.It seems that you are using a notebook, do u use any additional mouse apart from touchpad?By examining the output of above files, you have to rerun the approppriate setup tools.
Actually it turns out I was mounting the partition in the wrong location, when I tried /usr/local it worked fine. I had not had a chance to get to the forum to update, my apologies. But if you have some advice on getting a D-Link DWL-G630 to work than that would be awesome :-). Thanks so much for your time, I appreciate your help so much and as soon as I figure out how to use linux I'll be posting help tips too.
Thanks again Tom
