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.

Distribution: Slackware 13.37 on lappy, ubuntu on server.
I added rc.networkmanager to rc.d/rc.local, and it said during startup that the networkmanager daemon was started.
I also added my user to netdev, but when I try to launch nm-applet I get:
** (nm-applet:2604): WARNING **: <WARN> request_name(): Could not acquire the NetworkManagerUserSettings service.
Error: (9) Connection ":1.20" is not allowed to own the service "org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings" due to security policies in the configuration file
Where did you installed NetworkManager and nm-applet from?
I installed it from SlackBuilds, building the proper dependencies whenever something screamed while installing, and works fine. If you want to try it, I recommend you download SboPkg to make things easier: http://sbopkg.org/
