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.

Okay my Windows PC just crashed again. I was looking at what I need to do to fix it and started thinking about why I would fix it again since it isn't going to stay working anyway.
So my question is as I rebuild my gaming pc and look at hardware can anyone give me some personal perspective on how linux more specifically slackware handles things like Crossfire or SLI, the newer hardware like Core 2 Duo's and all that combined with something like Cedega? If youve got all that working is it as smooth as it should be in windows? This and a way to connect to a terminal server running windows at work is the only thing in my way from going back to a single beefy machine instead of 2 value machines and not spending so much money on licenses.
Slackware replaces Windows completely from a work perspective, but for games forget it. I just boot into Windows when the itch to game comes, otherwise 90% of my time is in Slackware. It doesn't annoy me.
