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 tried to write them on the assumption that the reader has no experience at all with Linux. Of course I'm hoping that newcomers will use it as a learning tool, but it would also be great if any experienced Slackers who have the time could take a peek and yell if you see any problems.
Trouble with the link on the slackconfig.html page that points to desktop1.html as it then goes onto a Debian and Mepis based page. All the same, a very good tutorial.
That's the only tutorial I have right now for the KDE 4.x desktop environment. I'm working on one right now for KDE 4.5.3 on a Slackware platform, and with any luck I'll have it up before the day is out.
Not so much "gutter" as colloquial. The OP is trying to personalize and make it easier to read. Dry, dusty and grammatically correct would probably be worse.
However the important part is the information, how you get it across, depends on who you are trying to teach. For example or is that "As an exemplar" or "let's try...". All people have different modes of thinking and by modelling the language to the reader you will have better results.
