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.

and another happy camper reports that Eric's excellent work with KDE4.4.0 is greatly appreciated...significantly snappier response than KDE4.3 that is in -current, on an IBM R51 laptop...difficulties I had getting to his site today and yesterday were as a result of an overheating laptop that finally locked up this aft...oh well...more futzing around to come...where is that tube of thermal paste?
alien bobs kde 4.4 was really running smooth on my lenovo s10e netbook.
file indexing and serverdeamons disabled offcourse and with the the netbook desktop composition and eyecandy to the max it hardly took more of the system then xfce does on stable.
i think that his work on this is gonna generate some new slackers.
his firewall script generator adaptation is awesome.
Distribution: Slackware64-current with "True Multilib."
Well, I've upgraded to 'current' and installed KDE 4.4, and overall things are running very well.
So far I see kmix has taken a step backwards, i.e., you can no longer split the channels.
Akonadi and nepomuk/strigi are still a P-I-T-A. When in use there were upwards of 15 - 20 instances running in the process table and 50 to 100% of the CPU was being used. As with earlier versions of KDE 4.xx, un-installing akonadi and disabling nepomuk/strigi solved the problem.
Many thanks to Alien Bob for making the files available.
Hi Eric, there are no specific capture options in the channel selectors - they are actually part of the channel itself. But I used the right-click method on the mic boost channel to get them back - thanks.
