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.

Just that i would like to get my hardware decent supported by the kernel and base system.
As you already point out, hardware is a kernel-thing.
Just upgrade you kernel. :) I'm still on Slack 8.1, for
goodness sake, and not planning to move ahead any
time soon (individual security-fixes, OK, but not the
system as such :}) ...
Just a FYI, when asking these types of questions about version releasing, no one is really going to know for sure as opensource type projects go thru a lot of testing, etc. Patrick at the last second could hold off when creating a newer release due to bugs, security, etc. So in the end, no one knows til its actually released. Even Patrick himself who creates Slackware says he doesn't know for sure on each release. He'd rather spend the time creating a solid bug free distro instead of trying to make some deadline he created in his head and told the mass public.
re: Slacker version for my old hp Pavillion a1133w PY030AA
Thanks to all of you. That was quick. Sure beats a long walk through MS NIGHTMARE SCAPE. I have used Ubuntu on three PC critical care patients, and KBE once. Those machines finally lived a fulfilling life. Thank you.
