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 only just in category 7 but what the hell - been using Slack since version 0.9!
Nice to see how lively this forum is still - haven't visited Linuxquestions in ages (I look after lots of other Linux distros, FreeBSD, Solaris & its clones and Tru64 stuff even for a living) but came here today after running into a problem with installing Slack64 14.0 after I rebuilt my old 32-bit Slack 13.37 PC with 64-bit mobo, SAS controller, etc.
Slackware since 10.2 iirc, so 5-ish years, Linux for 11 yrs, 'puters since , watfor/watfiv(1972?)...learned fortran, basic, cobol and pl1 in hs...used sliderule in hs...I think my brother is using his first calculator as a boat anchor....
36. Although I'm not an active full time user. I install it probably once a year, use it for a time, realize that I don't enjoy having no automated dependency resolution, and replace it with something else. Rinse and repeat every so often.
