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.

Today is my first day with Linux and most of the threads' replies is a bit too advance for me. So instead I try to post a new thread asking for help.
I finally got Slackware 9.0 and XP dualboot but there's are some problems.
1. My soundcard, TurtleBeach Santa Cruz is not working.. I had no idea at all how to fix it
2. I connect to the internet via adsl through a router. Website and ICQ is okay but I cant connect into IRC server. Xchat kept giving me an error about invalid username with 0.0.0.0 IP. My IP is on DMZ so Im convinced the router isnt the source of the problem. I wonder if Slackware has builtin firewall or Im required to setup something before I could connect?? On the same time, I went and download newer version of xchat and install it using pkgtool. Now xchat wont work anymore, even after I tried uninstall and reinstalling Xchat, couple of times using the ISO. When I log out, I saw an error message produced by Xchat mentioning about X Server but Im not sure what its about.
3. How do I add font to Slackware?? The default font is very hard to read, not to mention the lack of anti-alias.
4. If Im going to reinstall Slackware again using the exact method I used earlier, could I still use the same bootsect.lnx for dualbooting??
