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.

Logo for slack -current
I suppose that slackware -current is a some kind of slack based distro, yeah there are differences between
the last official slackware realese and slack -current. So I thought that it deserves its own logo. Nothing very sophisticated. My proposition is to add to the common slackware logo a yellow icon which may be found on websites being in construction, you know the yellow triangle with tools.
The other reason is that there are people who maintain the current version of slack and the logo will be a some kind of a feedback for them.
Yes, but the fundamental right will insist that the *magenta* actually denotes sexual orientation and is yet another example of *liberals* promoting homosexuality, which ultimately, apparently, results in rampant paedophelia, climaxing in jihaad and suicide bombings.
So, rather than risk being labelled anything other than *human*, I'll stick with the non-logo (though I do like the idea....)
Where do you see the Slackware logo, at any point in time? I know I see it only once, upon LILO booting up, and you can easily change that logo in /etc/lilo.conf -- and that's only if you use a graphical LILO boot. Unlike many other distros the Slackware logo is not very visible...before the graphical LILO boot screen it was easy to forget it even had one. So with that said, and since LILO can boot Slackware -current *or* stable *or* Windows *or* a completely different distro etc., I don't see how replacing the logo at the LILO boot prompt would necessarily reflect the nature of the *running* OS anyway.
