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.

PS Or on an USB stick. I don't know why they don't suggest to simply use the dd command to write it on the USB stick though, assuming that you make the ISO image hybrid first using the isohybrid command (included in Slackware 14.1).

I could see if doing lots of partitioning non-stop, G\KParted is nice but if it's pre-installed here at home I maybe use it once if that plus what happens if you can't search for help and have to use the CLI tools?

I had a need for a partition resizer and used the live cd version of gparted. It did the job with no problems. I resized a 500 gig partition to 750 gigs and it took hours. Be prepared to have the machine out of commision for a while if you use the live cd to resize a partition.
