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.

View Poll Results: Are you using any Slackware derivative distributions?
I am a Slackware user and i also have a Slackware derivative installation
Distribution: Slackware (mainly) and then a lot of others...
Well slackware is the real thing. It keeps out of your way but then sometimes you have to help a friend or a family member out and you are not available 24x7 for them. In that case it is a lot easier if you install something that might provide some degree of control (gui based).
In these situations I think Vector is the best.
I only use Slackware. If you answer to this poll, in this forum, that you are instead using a Slackware derivative, you should reconsider your options.
There is no such option in the poll. The only requirement for voting is being a Slackware user, its explicitly said on every one of the available choices.
I somehow missed listing the most popular option, but i am documenting every Slackware only user, but i realise not having the tick might prevent some users from voting by posting.
I can't give the right answer to this question either. I have salix on a CD and I even copied the CD on to my hard drive and included its kernel in the lilo menu (I have experimented like this with other live distros). Although I have mucked around with salix to see what it was like I could never say that I use it.
