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.

first of all I've recently installed Slack=> me happy
but still there are a few problems:
~ I can't connect to Internet (using ppp-go I hear in the headset only the busy "tone")
Aren't there any other dialer (I use Gnome or at least I'm trying).
~ Nautilus isn't working (it says it requires a certain libcdda_cparnioa.so module that I cannot find on any of the CDs)
~ I can't boot on the win hdd (it is on the hdc disk)
i don't use ppp, so i don't know anything about this but all your configuration files (should be) in /etc and there's a directory /etc/ppp (at least, on my slackware 9.1 system there is). i looked at the file in there (/etc/ppp/options) and it has a lot of explanation right inside the file in comments so it should be really easy to figure out (most slackware configuration files are very well documented inside the file. it makes the files longer, but it's helpful for newbies and organized sysadmins alike).
