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'm under a weird problem. Slackpkg tells me that it just works with awk installed, but I DO HAVE AWK already.
Ok, then I have reinstalled it, hoping it would solve my problem:
bash-3.2# installpkg gawk-3.1.5-i486-3.tgz
Installing package gawk-3.1.5-i486-3...
gawk: gawk (pattern scanning and processing language)
gawk: Gawk is the GNU Project's implementation of the AWK programming
gawk: language. It conforms to the definition of the language in the POSIX
gawk: 1003.2 Command Language And Utilities Standard. This version in turn
gawk: is based on the description in The AWK Programming Language, by Aho,
gawk: Kernighan, and Weinberger, with the additional features found in the
gawk: System V Release 4 version of UNIX awk. Gawk also provides more
gawk: recent Bell Labs awk extensions, and some GNU-specific extensions.
Executing install script for gawk-3.1.5-i486-3...
bash-3.2# slackpkg update
No awk found! Please, install awk before you run slackpkg.
Without awk, slackpkg doesn't work in any way.
