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 started off as a big enlightenment fan but when it comes to linux im a Slackware fan as well and with E gone since 10.1 I figured it was time to find something else instead of just compiling E. I tried wmaker for a while but it got boring and fast. I am thinking of trying blackbox or fluxbox but I am unable to decide right now. Any major differences that stand out? Do people generaly preffer one over the other? Thanks.
on the fluxbox.org site, it lists some differences.
I like fluxbox, but for what I use, I can't tell too much of a difference, but you can dock stuff in the toolbar in flux, but not blackbox. I'm using flux right now. It makes my old slow computer fast. :P
When deciding to switch from KDE I first tried Blackbox. I liked the speed and simplicity, but I quickly found my way to Fluxbox instead. It's basically the same but has some extra configurable options (I think), the slit for docking apps as superchar42 mentioned, 100% compaible with Blackbox themes and styles, and it supports KDE apps (as long as the required libs are available). There's more on Fluxbox's site.
