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.

This is just to report that I installed Slackware on a new Acer M Laptop and I could not get the wifi to work. The WIFI routers (at work and at home) were getting crazy when I tried to connect which was embarrassing (and possibly life threatening:-). I uninstalled completely networkmanager and Networkmanagement. I installed them again but now I installed wicd and I am online with wicd - Problem Solved
I recall once when the fortune of the day saved my life. I was about to drop a plugged-in blow dryer into the bathwater I was partially submerged in, when I recalled a past fortune, something to do with either Bo Diddley, or maple syrup, and I became distracted enough that I forgot about the blow dryer and settled back to smoke a corn cob pipe, filled with Erinmore pipe tobacco (rum flavoured, wine-dipped!)
So, I join you in thanking software, scripts, and the like, for all the life saving they do.
