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 found no xinitrc.mwm in /etc/X11/xinit, so I modified xinitrc.twm to be xinitrc.mwm, but it did not work properly, I meant mouse button actions on screen/windows had no reaction at all ( it should pull down a menu like stated in .mwmrc, copied from /etc/X11/mwm/system.mwmrc ), it did nothing .., only startet the xterms ..
Btw, twm worked fine, windowMaker even better, xfce sux .y.
My ~/.xinitrc looked like this:
Yes they already put out that ISO dated 05-SEP-2003.
Actually I don't want to suck it down, it is too time consuming, I estimated it could take 2days at least maybe 3 or 4 days. Now I got 23% after 18 hours.
Wut u meant with make own ISO ? Wut should I download in that case ? I meant it is too much work to download those directory trees.. Wut I really need is only the the bare.i+2rootDisk+/slackwareTree.
I d/l the ISO it is because it is simpler (1 file). I'd prefer install swared n updated online than making own iso if my system partition didn't get miss state .. I usually have many symbolic link among each other of the distros, sharing the many of the root files among them .. I prefer to make a clean install ..
So if I know another mirror of the new iso of zuul.slackware.com then I can segments the download now, it will be surely be faster ..
You would download what you would like on your install cd I did that for 9.0 before they released an iso. It wasn't too hard in my opinion but then opinions vary. In the post above you will find the iso's you wanted.
So I can not segment the download, bcoz it is easily different images (different image-name and size, I dun no how to segment it with getright).
But thank any way for the link posting, I'd d/l from there if I'd not already got 292 MBs from 1020MB (30% after 24 hours). I believe it must be faster to d/l from other site than from slackwareDotBiz, bcoz many ppl is maybe downloading from there parallely ..
