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 noticed that this happens for all mirrors Slackware64-14.0
Also tried and got sucess with Slackware-14.0, but not with Slackware64-14.0.
For the network options, you'll need to have a network card that's supported by one of the installer's modules, and preferably a DHCP server running to make the network setup easy. The network install options are to use as your source an NFS server, an FTP server, or an HTTP server (along with an optional port). If you use DHCP to set up, odds are you'll have working name resolution and won't need to enter an IP address to specify the server (but you can if you wish, of course).
The network installation feature is intended primarily to facilitate installing to many machines on a local network. Please don't use it to bog down the Slackware mirror sites.
You should be using a local network as stated above. Easily done by downloading the ISO of choice then mount that image either locally or on your network server. Less chance of errors or loading a mirror.
You should look at Slackware Doc Project to get some helpful and useful information. SlackDoc is very helpful, along with the provided Slackware documentation you should be able to achieve the install.
