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 originally installed Kubuntu(64bit) 9.04 and was going to stick with that until Slackware64 was stable.
Only thing is that I couldn't get sound working.
Really long story short, I start all over again.
This time with 12.2
Now I have no sound, no wireless or wired internet connection.
That's what I got so far.
Here is what I want to do.
I am going to to be traveling a lot.
This has to be my everything machine.
Business and pleasure.
If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great or if someone who is in the 21122 zip code that's willing to meet up and walk me through this would be even better.
Anyhow, tell me what you think.
It looks like your eth0 card is showing a mac address, but you haven't got a kernel module to drive it. You can download on at the Realtek site here is a link. I have never had to compile a module so I am not 100% sure of the procedure so I would suggest downloading the correct driver and then searching for compile module slackware. That should get you started.
