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 just installed slack after using redhat and debian(where i could not get a working x server due to odd hardware) and now i wanted to compile my own kernel and i wanted to do it from my redhat partion onto another partion, well turned out redhat did not have any of the commands i needed like mkswap, mk2fs and so on.
so i got fed up and decided to take a shot at slackware since i never tried the new 9.0 and i thought maybe it would be different from the failure i had with 8.1(i think can't remember)
and even before i had a x server up slack surprised me not only with a "made for dummies" install that fit me perfect but also with the fact that you can have high resolution before x even starts and that little penguin at boot was so cute and then when i got x up and running with no major problems and saw how fast gnome was supposed to be(old redhat user remember) i also noticed that not only did my sound work but it worked in all 4 surround speakers and the bass speaker(on redhat 9 my sound didn't work at all after i upgraded from 8)
so since i couldn't find the user success stories forum i just wanted to let everyone know that all 4 speakers work in slack(i've seen lots of ppl have problems with this) and that slack owns me prolly forever now
