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 recently noticed that a tool called slackpkg exists. Apprently one can install, upgrade and remove packages with it. My question is then, is there any reason for me to use this tool rather than pkgtool? As far as I know pkgtool does the job just fine and, again, as far as I know, the only difference between to two of them is the fact that slackpkg is capable of fetching packages form ftp and http. So, any reason, besides that, I should consider using it?
My question conserning fluxbox is of another matter. Almost immediately after installing Slackware 10 I installed a fluxbox 0.9.10 package found at linuxpackages.net instead of the "stock version". However, every time after exiting X I see following warning:
*** WARNING: 'Workspace<n>' actions are deprecated! Use 'Workspace <n>' instead ***
This is a rather recent slack install, only a few days old. On the old installation I did not get this warning, though it was the exact same fluxbox package I installed. I think I might have screwed it up myself by running the stock version prior to installing the newer one, but I honestly cannot remember for sure. Any ideas or advice, anyone?
