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 installed slackware and grub and I messed up my menu.lst file because I don't get any menu options just the command line. How do I get the fancy menu up? Here is what the file looks like. If it helps I am using grub 1.98. By the way thanks.
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-generic-126.96.36.199 root=/dev/sda3
title Wow Linux
kernel /boot/wow-linux root=/dev/sda3
It seems the runlevel is in CLI mode. Change your runlevel to GUI mode(/etc/inittab).
# These are the default runlevels in Slackware:
# 0 = halt
# 1 = single user mode
# 2 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
# 3 = multiuser mode (default Slackware runlevel)
# 4 = X11 with KDM/GDM/XDM (session managers)
# 5 = unused (but configured the same as runlevel 3)
# 6 = reboot
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
It did not work. I was reading it and it seems to be a tutorial for suse. Thanks for the for thought.
Hopefully you are talking about the link EDDY1 posted. If so, you'd better explain yourself - "It did not work" is absolutely meaningless. What did you try, how much did you read, and what failed.
How could you construe it as a Suse (only) tutorial ?.
