seeking FAQ

I am guessing there may be an exclusive FAQ that give users answers for questions they may run into. I have done a quick search without any positive results.

I have seen the FAQ on the front page regarding registration, and the FAQ button regarding usage of the board.

I have seen a lot of the same questions being asked and answered for example lost passwords, sound issues, kernel compiling... yet nothing centralized that will assist a user from being able something to chew on before asking something that has been asked before.

If someone could please light the way, it would be mostly appreciated. Thank you!

Because there are some standard things that seem to "come up" after a slack install. That, and it's the best distro ever

I don't think an FAQ is necessary though, because like David said the search feature works fine for these usual things, such as normally having to configure X for the first time, chmodding your soundcard (or creating a group and adding your user(s) to it), and so on. Things you and I take for granted because we've ran more than 1 distro, more than once.

Thanks all
Through my trials and tribulations of playing with slackware, I have already begun to document all the little speed bumps and tricks to make things fat dumb and happy (including me)... after I have gone through this a few dozen times I will be sure to post and share what I have learned

Hello Slackfan

I'm new with slack myself and have downloaded all kinds of online books. The one I'm using the most and getting the most out of is called:

Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition

I've only been using Linux since Jan. but with the help of this book I've finally got my sound working for root and user accounts.

I believe that I found that book on or org, might even have been com. But it has certainly help me, you might look it up and give it a glance, I use it alot and it is nice being able to use it while I'm running linux.

And Slack does Rule!!

Thanks nuttiernu!
I did a quick search on google and found it on sourceforge as you suggested:
which exposed the link to download the pdf
the pdf has the date of August 14, 2001 but the web version seems a little more current from the first glance... I will be sure to go over this material and add it to my linux library! Thank you very much for the suggestion
