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.

Well, I'm in the midst of dl'ing 13.0 to burn to dvd (haven't had to create a slack dvd in eons, but I'm trying to put 13.0 on a friend's acer lappy, and it actually shuts right down whilst attempting an ftp install, so I'm goin' local...)
So, once the torrent is finished, I'll give the new-and-improved k3b a whirl, and report back whether it's coasters or, erm (what rhymes with coasters and makes sense?)
Does anyone know whether you can have a console beep in Konsole in 4.3.2? It seems that this feature was taken out in the earlier versions. Either way, I guess I'll be trying out KDE 4.3.2, since I've got a partition set up for Slackware -current.
not totally sure it's pertinent, but if you want to try, I fixed my k3b (and console) burning problems substituting cdrtools with cdrkit (that linked is slack64 version, I adapted 32 bit slackbuild.org script for 12.2, if you need a 32bit version you have to build by yourself).
I am primarily an XFce user.
I ran KDE 4.3.2 for a time last night on my -Current partition. This version of KDE is polished and runs very smoothly on my box. This is a winner.
Many thanks to Robby, Eric, and the entire Slackware team for their excellent work.
