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.

OK, go easy. New Slacker here. At least it's running - with dropline gnome too.
So far I got Samba up and Opera installed and VIM installed.
Now this is the frustrating type of thing in Linux for me which no doubt due to years of use, take me 30 secs in Win. - I can't see how to add a newly installed application to the gnome menu in Slackware. Couldn't find anything in the Slackware site doc or by web searching or by searching the dropline forum. No problem with Opera, it made its own menu item. But I would like one for GVIM and maybe other apps later on. So who knows how to do this no doubt simple thing?
Thanks for sharing!
Well, I'm currently on Red Hat and using KDE, BUT, try right clicking on the little gnome foot, or whatever you click on to pop up the menu. On KDE you can right click on the little hat and select Menu Editor.
Thanks itsjustme - guess I expected this to be a lot harder than Fedora, but it's about the same.
You were pretty close - just right click on the task bar to add a launcher or right click on a menu section to add an item. It set up ok.
