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.

No, blackbox is on slack extra cd (extras folder on ftp site) and AFAIK flux is not included yet, but xfce is included in the 8.1 release, its nice and small too, although i prefer black/fluxbox
you can go here to get the fluxbox. it is very nice. most of the window manager out there are very nice. use the one that you like, not the one that everyone tells you to use. E, ice, fluxbox and blackbox will run fine on that computer. The fluxbox site has an slackware package, installation is a breeze. installpkgtool "fluxboxfilename".
I installed Fluxbox last night and wow! I love it! I never have been a fan of the GNOME and KDE desktop styles and have always been a big fan of Windowmaker. I tried Windowmaker again a few days ago (I just installed Redhat 8.0 last weekend. Haven't used Linux in awhile) and it was still as I remembered it, nice, but it felt stale.
Checked out Fluxbox and to me it feels like Windowmaker+. Same reasons why I liked Windowmaker with a lot of new features like the tabs at the top (which I love).
