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 used Slackware on a few machines, and it never takes me 3 days to get a fully working system. To be fair, maybe this guy just wasn't ready to represent Slackware due to his own knowledge/skills.
Distribution: slackware64 13.37 and -current, Dragonfly BSD
Yeah - admittedly my 'test' box install of Slack 12 rc1 took about an hour to get X,wireless and sound setup correctly but only because I am used to it by now. Also the 'Slackware' guy is running XFCE which I find too minimal - I just love KDE. I am probably going to get ripped to shreds by the minimalist window manager crew but whatever - to me KDE looks so nice !! (yes - I do a lot from a bash terminal but for some tasks a gui is far more productive - lets be honest !!) - Oh - and I like shiny looking things
When I browsed the Debian web site, I didn't get the impression they were hippies, more like civil servants or bureaucrats - with this Policy & that Policy. Slackers are much more easy going. Hang loose, man, get Slack!
(flame war brewing??? )
