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 always do a clean install of the new Slackware version and rebuild all I have from SlackBuilds.org
I do that as well. Two of three Slackware 14.1 installs completed yesterday without a hitch. Will do the last install tonight. The good people at SBo will release new slackbuild scripts in the near future.
for those that rebuild SlackBuilds.org packages, do you have some sort of script that runs through all the packages to update from SlackBuilds.org and then builds them? some of the programs I have have a nightmare of dependencies that require too much manual work to rebuild.
