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.

If you are using 32 bit slackware, download the 10.1 flash player pre-release, or as suggested install google-chrome with will install the same flash player version. Whatever you like. With 64 bit, there MIGHT be a newer flash plugin than what you have I can't remember exactly. Chrome doesn't bundle flash with the 64 bit version.
Gconf is part of gnome. If this is a slackware box you need Gconf and seamonkey solibs. The quote is from the slackbuilds page for google-chrome. If you are using sbopkg you might have missed that. The thing about google-chrome slackbuild is that it isn't compiling anything, just repackaging and linking some libraries, therefore you won't get any errors regarding missing dependencies I don't think because it isn't building, just installing a .deb file.
First: that is not seamonkey-solibs from the "l/" section but the full seamonkey from the "xap/" section. FOr your purposes the seamonkey-solibs would be sufficient but installing the full seamonkey instead is OK.
Second: that URL is for 64-bit Slackware-current. Only install this version if indeed you are running slackware-current and not 13.0.
