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.

DHCP (server and client) package doesn't contain init script, so I had to write one myself. Dnsmasq on the other hand comes with pre-packaged one. Is that intentional or bug? And if it is bug, could someone from Slackware team fix this, so it could be included in Slackware 14 final release?
And what is the reason behind not including rc.dhcpd? If any other widely used software (MySQL, sshd, cups, httpd, ...) that comes from official Slackware package has it's own rc script, why not dhcpd? Personally, I would rather run Dnsmasq than dhcpd, but I can't because I also need authoritative DNS server. So dhcpd + BIND/Unbound/Knot is the only option.
