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.

to fuel, hope i'm not too late, but try ls --help, or man ls, this will tell you how to use the ls command and how to get color from the ls, as for wine, they meant that the divx player was a memory hog, and it would streach the power of wine to run it, hope this helps
my suggestion for your partitions under slack is the following:
[swap partition] (i generally make my swap about the same size as my ram, in your case 384 megs.)
/boot (this isn't a necessary partition unless your hdd is over 10gigs, but 50 megs should be more than enough)
/ (fill up the rest of your space with this)
the /home, /usr and other partitions aren't necessary. in fact, i try and stay away from them since i've found that having too many partitions can mess with your tables... plus i like to keep things as simple as possible.
If you do this, make sure you run on something like ext3 or reiser. If you keep everything running on just the / partition, should the unmentionable happen (it goes down), you could find you have a system that takes ages to fsck, and even then could have several problems.
