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.

What a fantastic, informative, and "must listen" interview for newcomer's and seasoned Slackware veteran's alike. I found that the interviewer's asked many questions that newcomer's to linux, Slackware (present company included) tend to ask here on the forums. Whether or not someone agrees with past/present/or future design and roadmap decisions of the project, it was nice to hear Mr. Pat V address these items in a comprehensive manner and eliminate much of the touted speculation that we see in the news and reviews of the distribution. Slackware 12? sounds like it will include major changes and I look forward to trying my hand at running a partition with 'current'.
I couldn't agree more. That was a great interview. It was great to actually hear from *the man* himself regarding Slackware and other more personal stuff that he is into outside of linux. Highly recommended!!
Thanks for the kudos. As big Slackware fans we've wanted to talk to Pat V. for the longest time. He's obviously very busy and we're very grateful he took the time to talk to us. As far as the LQ references, LQ is a great resource to the community. Plus we're good friends with Jeremy. Speaking of Jeremy, we should get him on again so we can rehash those LWE Boston stories from this past April.
