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.

Hi, this is my first time using linux and i chose slackware as my distribution. Whenever i try to start Xfree it gives me an error saying i have no screens, and i cant figure out how to fix it, can you please help?
try xf86config and try to configure your card. If you fail to do so try X -configure . It will auto probe card and try to configure it. After that read te instrctions on the screen to try it . If new config file works mv it to /etc/X11/XF86Config then you can use startx to startx XWindows
Slackware does not set up X during the install, slack sets up bugger all during the install. One of the main reasons I like it is that you have to set it up yourself after the install and as such don't have to worry about removing/fixing the config done by some brain dead gui automagick config tool that some distro's ship with.
