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 not a Slax forum, so you won't find many here who know about '*.lzm' or '*.mo' modules -only about *.o and *.ko kernel modules. LOL
Try using a different version/brand of LiveCD thta has the features you want.
I'm not a slax expert, but I did download the latest version recently. From what I can see, the term "modules" is used by slax to refer to additional programs or program groups that can be added or removed either on-the-fly or by performing a second burn of the CD to include these items on the live CD. The two extentions you refer to .mo and .lzm are the extension for the slax modules which appear to have changed from one to the other in one of the latest slax version changes. These do not appear to have anything to do with linux kernel modules with the .o or .ko extension - at least not directly.
Hopefully I have not butchered that too much.

Yes, Franklin, you got it right. That's what I meant, though I wasn't so explicit. Slackware uses neither .mo nor .lzm 'modules'. Slackware lets you add programs by installing *packages*.
The OP should post qiestions regarding .lzm or .mo modules on the forum for whichever distro he is using. We're not terribly unfriendly here on the Slackware forum, but questions relating to so-called 'Slackware-based' distros are only rarely Slackware questions. The problems and quirks of Slackware-based LiveCD's are the part where those differ from real Slackware, so most users here don't have a clue (or interest) as to how to solve the issues.
