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 do most my stuff on the command line, however I find thunar useful for two things,
1) quickly mounting usb-sticks/removable media from it's side bar
2) Navigating directories full of pictures/photos where the filename isn't always that useful and the thumbnails really come in handy.
thumbs up for mc:
no way better to copy a plentitude of files (aka backup) there and forth (locally or lan/wan) with possible hick-ups (dialogs with "no, no to all , yes, yes to all, cancel")
where there a XFCE vesion for mc, i would strongly promote it, for KDE/Qt there seems to be krusader, I would love to see it on OEM slackware though (room in extra?).
