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 have a little question.
I try to make a iso by using the mirror-current script.
But it fail again and again.
I do this :
sh mirror-slackware-current.sh -l /home/Desktop/slackware -r slackware64-current -o DVD -f -v
Enabling verbose output....
# Mirroring slackware-slackware64-current from rsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware64-currentslackware-slackware64-current ...
Error while testing the connection to rsync mirror rsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware64-currentslackware-slackware64-current!
Did you make a typing mistake perhaps in the URI '-m rsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware/slackware64-currentslackware-slackware64-current'?
The command's exit code was 23.
The error output was: 'rsync: change_dir "/slackware-currentrsync.slackware.pl::slackware" (in slackware) failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1505) [receiver=3.0.6]'
If I download the RC and actually get it to install, when stable is released can I just update to stable and have that or will it require a re-install?
Only reason I ask is I love Slack! But my machine hates Lilo and some other things and it will take time, a hammer, an act of higher power and patience to even get it to work. If I can't go stable when released no point in going through all this...
