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.

sure, if you can do it, make another partition, install slackware, boot into your new slackware system, mount the old slackware partition where you have your files, and copy all you want to your new and working slackware partition. after that you can reinstall slackware on the partition it should be, boot the other new installed slackware, copy all files back and do whatever you please with the partition you used to install the "backup slack". Anyway, when you do reinstall Slackware on the partition where you want it to be, i recommend -again- you should first resize your partition and make at least 1 partition for / and another one for /home, so you won't have this problems again when forced to reinstall.
