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.

View Poll Results: which one is better ? And Pls Specify Features of each...
I give the preference to redhat, because in a production environment, you can easily get hold of the required extra packages as rpm's and then install them, while in slack, you will have the problem of compiling from source.
Another important difference is that RH lets you update your system easily. So, I vote for Red Hat.
no harm in teling u people the "official resons". and no intent of starting a hatter v/s slackers war...
Earlier i was restricted to coding or kernel compilation only and redhat went well with it...
Now we are installing a MIS (Management Information System) so i have to decide which one to use of the two...as this is a huge system, i have to make the choice carefully...
If you've used RH for more than an year, why don't you try something new? Then you'll can compare the 2 distros on your own And you'll can vote in such stupid polls too Why stupid? Because the personal opinion is realtive. I've run RH great, now I'm running Slack great, too. But I know people that had problems with Slack, and others that had problems with RH. So, that's why the personal opinion is realitve. Instead of wondering which one to chose, try the new one and build your own opinion about it
