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 was looking at those packages on linuxpackages.net, and they seemed to require a lot of other packages from the site as well (like D-Bus, hal, ...). Are there any other packages that are built more the way 3.5.4 was, that don't require any other packages outside slackware-11.0?
Thanks, I might. I would really rather not compile everything myself, though - that's why I'm looking for packages.
Well... I don't have any for vanilla Slackware 11.0, and I have no plans to build any, as my goal is testing for the gnupg2 integration (which allows KMail to completely support encrypting/decrypting messages). There are quite a few dependencies for these packages, all of which are noted, available, and documented on my site. If you're interested (be aware that these are marked *testing* for a reason though), see http://rlworkman.net/pkgs/11.0/testing/kde-3.5.6/
