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.

i downloaded a package, and when it was done downloading, it opened in a window which appeared to have buttons which would compile, make and make install. i've seen this twice now, but i never looked at what it was. any ideas what this thing is? at first i thought it was emacs, but emacs doesn't seem to be what it was.
what i'm referring to appears to be a gui of some sort which offers you the ability to compile, make and make install outside of the terminal command. i'm still looking for it, i know it's here someplace, i just can't seem to locate it. i think the reason i ignored it and clicked away from it was that i am so used to using cli, but both times this program appeared, i spotted the buttons at the bottom just as i was closing it out, so never really did see what i just closed.
i believe one was a tar.gz and another was a tar.bz2. they were not slackbuilds. i've tried downloading tar.gz and tar.bz2 to see if they would launch anything, but they don't. i think it's one of those odd things i'll never know...
ahhhh...ok i see what you're asking. i don't know the name of the package. i know it lives in slackware 14 someplace but i don't know how to trigger it. its possible it's part of a download manager, or something that it triggered by a download manager, but i cannot reproduce what i did before to have it start up.
