The search function here on LQ is really quite nice as well. So far, just about every question that has come up since I started using Slackware has been answered just by doing a couple of quick searches here.

And the Slackware book really is pretty good. It gives you the basics and answers a lot of questions before you even realize you were going to ask them.
