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.

I have another question, Im trying to make my slackware net run ( wireless lan ) and Im having alotta problems. Does slackware 9.1 has some good internet configuration tool so I can make it work more easily ? Cause a kid next door that uses redhat 9 configured it for like 5 minutes using an X net configuration tool.
Dude- DO-NOT-WRITE-TO-NTFS!! Unless of course you enjoy reinstalling whatever OS you have on that partition as well as losing your data. Writing to NTFS with Linux is still very much in the experimental stage and is not recommended.
If you want to really share space with Windows, use FAT32 as linuxjaver said. --it is safe.
Can't help you there. I used the command line, in 9.0, with hardwired DSL. Nothing like your situation. I can prb guess though, that there isn't any kind of pretty graphical comfiguration and you'll have to get in deeper than that
With Slackware, the easiest configuration tool is the command line...
If you're having problems, you may need to install a new module for your wireless card, from http://www.linux-wlan.org. My Slackware notebook has a Netgear MA401 prism2 chipset wireless pcmcia card, and I found that the Slackware default orinico module was buggy.
I installed the prism2 modules from linux-wlan.org and it's been perfect since.
You could always install explore2fs on the windows os, then you can pull files from the linux partition and linux can pull from the ntfs, so if you don't want it, you don't have to have an extra fat32 partition.
