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.

search this forum for an article titled "slackware 9.1 released", read through ..
My advice in short: googling(bittorent), get the window installer version, but not the latest (the one with b1.., something version 3.1,3.2..), double click the file u downloaded, if it doesn't complained anything, then u have bittorent installed..
Restart ur browser, check the slackware.com/torrents/index.html for the images u need .. It is faster than conventional downloading from mirrors .. at least 2 or 3 hours faster, even more ..
Btw, do u know howto limit the upload rate on bittorrent 3.3-slack ?
Since I got 60% of an 65-image, my download rate is lower than 1kB/s, but upload is ~6kB/s .. That must be caused that most finished peer (potential seeds closed their connection immediately).
On that window-gui it is possible to re-adjust the upload rate during the downloading, but it has a minimum limit about 10% of download-rate .. (fair .. isn't it ?) .. Haven't tried that azureus, next time ..
