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.

When I booted, slack went through the occasional hard-disk check for errors, and found some. After correcting them, my kernel kinda went haywire. I had trouble with installing video drivers, and I got all these messages about errors loading hotplug.
My video drivers work now, but I still get the hotplug error like ten times per boot.
/etc/hotplug.d/default/default.hotplug: line 1: error: cannot execute binary file
. . . no modules for PCI slot.
I also get an occasional
. . . no modules for USB product 0/0/0
and one is
. . . no modules for USB product 413c/2001/1
I'm running kernel 2.6.4, in 2.6.2 I only get the "no modules" error.
I checked for /usr/bin/env and it wasn't there. So I copied it over from the bootable slack disk, thinking it would be able to run env. I made sure it is executable and part of the group bin. Still doesn't work:
I also noticed that the 'clear' command stopped working. It turns out that clear was still there, but clear is just a shell scrip that runs 'tput clear'. Tput was gone, so I replaced that too. Clear still doesn't work either:
/usr/bin/clear: line 2: /usr/bin/tput: cannot execute binary file
