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 have Slackware 13 installed to a 16GB sdcard on an EeePC 900A. Previously I had it installed to an 8GB sdcard on the same machine. Works great for me. I tried installing AlienBob's repackage of the Debian udev rules for the hotkeys and that did not work for me. But I was able to get them working manually with Google help.
I have the 1005HA model, everything worked out of the box with Slackware 13.0. Oh wait, I'm not so sure about the built-in mic. I managed to get it to work in Skype once, but now I can't with my custom kernel. I don't know how it works with the stock one.
I have a 702 (the same as a 701 but with 8Gb SSD) and have Slackware 12.2 working on it almost perfectly. I even run KDE. Somehow the microphone does not seem to work, though it did in the original xandros linux that came with it.
I now have a 901 and will be installing slackware 13 soon, I'm thinking of using that one as a firewall but need a 2nd ethernet adaptor (a USB 2.0 adapter?). Anyone thinks this is a bad idea?
