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 have looked all over the internet and can't seem to find a way to get this going. I am sure I am overlooking something simple... but I just can't find away to get it going.
I have installed Slackware from the boxed CD set, version 10.0
I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.10.
I'm not sure that it matters, but I also upgraded to Xorg 6.8.1 and KDE 3.3.2.
This is all on a laptop and I need a crypto file system in case the computer gets stolen.
It seems to come down to needing a program called dmsetup. From what I understand that comes with the 2.6 kernel, however I cannot seem to find it in any of my Slackware parititions. I have looked at the util-linux and installed them inspite of the warnings, that did not seem to help.
I also installed Slackware 10.1 in a separate file-system. I could not get the it work there as well.
I have even RTFM on crypto, but cannot seem to find the one step I need to make it work.
I have followed several FAQ and how to's but I keep running into a brick wall.
Can someone help me, or point me to a FAQ or how-to for getting a crypto file system going under slackware?
