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.

Not really a pressing questions... just wondering..
which rc scripts do daemons like smbd nmbd dhcpd belong... I was hoping just to go into a script and uncomment a couple of lines so i greped through the scripts looking for any mention of these services yet there was none... except for dhcpd which was part of a conditional script/code that i didn't really understand?
For now I have these services launched in rc.local... just seems a little messy tho...?
launghing? how are you launching them inside a script? you should have an entry in /etc/rc.d/ for each daemon or service that is run, which is started by rc.sysinit or whatever slacks equivalent is... they are not loaded *inside* any script.
and that was what i answered. they are not in any script, you jsut create an S80smb (for example) entry in /etc/rc3.d/ (for example) as a link to smb in /etc/rc.d/ (might only be /etc/init.d/rc.d on slack, dunno)

Slackware uses rc.scripts to start and stop things, not S and K files. And they are all located in one directory /etc/rc.d/ , not like RedHat and Mandy which use the rc*.d directories to hold the simlinks to the program scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d/
Location: Rome, Italy ; Novi Sad, Srbija; Brisbane, Australia
Distribution: Ubuntu / ITOS2008
Also some services are started by another daemon, inetd which is started in start up scripts.
take a look through /etc/inetd.conf to configure your inetd to start only desired services.
Hope that helps!
