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.

Eric Hameleers (Alien Bob) has a very good script at http://www.slackware.com/~alien/tool...are-current.sh
I like this one because not only does it mirror the -current tree, but it will make isos for 2 CDs or one DVD. While Eric has done an excellent job on this script, I also appreciate being able to "tweak it just a little" for my own uses!
rohandhruva, Last time I used slackware.no it was pretty slow and I think the ISO is only updated once a week so you'd have to wait for the security updates to be included.
Making ISOs isn't hard even without the script TSquaredF (thanks TSquaredF!) pointed us to and I like to make custom subsets -- like a miniDVD Install without KDE. And as I said, you don't have to download the full ISO each time.
