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 your CD won't boot you have to make 3 floppies, look in the bootdisk and rootdisk directories...........rawrite the bare.i kernel and also rawrite the install 1 and 2 images...........read the readme's in both the directories.
Agreed, copying bare.i to a floppy won't result in you installing Slack. You need the CD's which are available for purchase at www.slackware.com or can be downloaded from other sites. If you PC refuses to boot off the CD, then you will need 3 floppies, one boot and 2 root floppies, those likewise are available at the Slack site. -- J.W.
The install process will ask you which packages you want installed. You can choose not to install KDE, GNOME but keep X11. I believe that you won't need DISC 2 if this is the case. It's best to have both DISC 1 & 2 for install, JIC.
BT the ISOs. It should take about an hour on a T1 (if you're sucking up the whole bandwidth).
