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 installed Slack 10.2 (First I had Slack 10.0). I've created a user only for me, but when I try to login with the graphic manager (KDE) it says something about /etc/shells and it doesn't let me. Don't realy understand what it wants. Can u help me pls?
The message is [i]Your login shell is not listed in /etc/shells".
Since I've caught you willing 2 help... can u tell me how do I setup my xorg.conf to start with a certain resolution for may Display? It starts by default with 1400x1050, and it doesn't have such power for this... (I need it on 1152x864.)
Slackware doesn't really utilize RPMs, but does have tools to convert them, such as rpm2tgz and alien... I never came across any rpms, because I always got slackware packages, or compiled from source, try getting the source instead of the rpm, places to look are, www.linuxpackages.net and www.slackware.com/pb
Some people here used rpm2tgz and said it worked right, I just got a package from http://linuxpackages.net
I personally don't understand why OO.org people decided not to provide a simple binary installer as they did for 1.X.
