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.

My directory consists of isolinux, kernels and slackware and that's it. By using this command I get about a 715 mg iso which burns nicely. I deleted the KDEi directory but you can also use the -x ./kdei function if you want.
hi all. i'm downloading an iso right now (from ftp://inferno.bioinformatics.vt.edu/linux-distros/slackware/slackware-9.0-iso/slackware-9.0-install.iso), but i would be interested in creating my own iso in the future at some point. from this thread it seems that it's necessary to leave either kde or gnome (or both) off the cd to get it to fit in 700MB, but the official cd has both of them on, right? am i missing something?
i'm thinking about using the target machine as a server- any suggestions (security or otherwise)? i'll probably try and set up sendmail, apache, and ftp to start (although from what i can tell from my 8.1 install they're set up automatically and just work), but maybe a nntp and/or name server if i'm feeling ambitious. i'd like to try out openbsd, for server stuff, but that'll have to wait until we get another spare box here.
i have 8.1 installed on my laptop right now, and it was a huge pain to install (nfs install-- no bootable cd drive, you see). would it be worth it for me to upgrade, or should i stick with what i have? any running 9 on their laptops right now?
i'm really not as clueless as i might seem right now-- for some reason i'm just feeling sort of dumb today.
