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'm running a fresh install of Slackware 9.1. I uninstalled the original XFCE 3.99 package provided by Slackware, and installed the newest XFCE package I could find for Slackware. However, whenever it starts, it complains that the panel has crashed and asks to restart it. However, it continues in an endless loop. For now, I have to stick with GNOME(even good old KDE has betrayed me by suddenly crashing on startup without good reason; but let's focus on the real problem of XFCE here...).
I had that same problem with xfce 3.99 on slack 9.1. This morning I decided to upgrade to slack current, which I got the latest xfce and kernel 2.4.24, plus many other upgrades, and xfce is working good know, using it right now.
Thanks, guys. I realised I didn't have libiconv installed, so I installed it per the instructions on the download page, but it still crashes. Looks like I'll have to compile from source. *crosses fingers*
Compiling from source is the way to go, I want to make a habit of doing things that way. But John, just to let you know I used swaret (swaret.org) to do my upgrading, works good it get's the dependencies and everything. Works just like urpmi, actually seems to work even better.
