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
Slackware on my high powered and much loved desktop machine. Debian squeeze on my boring work Laptop, Debian squeeze (Only thing I could find a SPARC port of) on my rebuilt Sun Sparc server I found in a bin.
I've toyed with Vector (interesting...but too far removed from Slack for me) and Salix (VERY nice if I must say) but always come to the realization that at least for me, you really can't beat the original.
Slackware only. I do dabble a bit with others to keep up on the tech. However, I only *use* Slackware. Except of course for this stupid Windows laptop my employer forces me to use. Can you believe our VPN web portal *requires* MSIE 6. Egad, man!
Hey, what the...stop...Get down! OFF! Bad Windows...BAD!
Thank you all for voting, next time i make a poll like this one i will try not to forget any options and write instructions on how to vote.
Even i didnt vote the way i wanted for other people to do so in this poll.
My motivation for creating it was that i switched from using system rescue cd as a live recovery medium into riplinux, since a Slackware system is much more familiar to me than a Gentoo one.
I was wondering, since Slackware doesnt have an official live CD, if other people choose any of the derivatives for that purpose as well.
