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 decided (as I always have) just to nuke my Slackware 10.2 installation and install 11.0 RC5 fresh a week ago. udev rules have significantly changed in the udev versions between 10.2 and 11.0. Make sure that you have the new rules files because otherwise things WILL break in a rather spectacular fashion. Unfortunately that also means that you will have to rewrite any custom rules you made.
I just finished downloading all 3 CD ISO. DVD is no good for me because only my laptop has DVD and my servers have CD only. I can't beleive it finally out. My 10.2 laptop install has been pretty good but it's in need for an update. I'll install fresh on my laptop then update my servers soon.
