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 just tried installing Fedora 5 and I had fun with it....for about an hour. I'm ready for Slackware again. Slack really is a GREAT distro. One thing I did like from Fedora was Gnome. I am thinking of installing Dropline Gnome, but I have a concern. My laptop (don't laugh) is a Toshiba 1625CDT with an i586 class CPU. Unfortunately, Dropline is an i686 based package. Can I still install it and run it? I seem to remember reading about the differences in i586 and i686 packages and it boiled down to optimizations. I would greatly appreciate your input.
Ok, I'm a Slack-er, I can compile from source. How hard would it be to install from source? I noticed that Freerock provides build scripts. I wonder if I compiled 2.14.2 using those scripts if they would update their site.
