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 did a full install of Slackware 10.0 using Gnome as my desktop manager. It's a networked computer and I've used Mozilla and the Gnome browser to get onto the internet -- not a problem for the first webpage I go to. Now, I'm stuck and can't download, can't go to any other pages Nothing happens when I try to go to another page, to click on a link, etc. It didn't "freeze" in a formal sense because I can close out the browser and open it again.
I've never encountered this problem before when I had Gentoo up and running on this machine.
I have a DLink Tx530 PCI card (via-rhine) and it's working only because I can get to the first webpage but nothing else. Help!
This will add the lines fine, for edit text I use vim personally
OK, did this using my name servers and... I can click on links, surf other pages, but cannot download anything. I'm trying to install Firefox 0.91 and Thunderbird 0.71 because I don't like the Mozilla suite (too sl-o-o-o-o-w and cumbersome). Galeon does nothing but stay on "My Portal".
I would think that the ports are not forwarded to your machine, just the port 80 TCP(http) and 53 UDP(dns) , which is weird if it worked in other distros as your iptables are configured to let all traffic come in and out.

Slack uses vi/vim
the first and best editor ever!!
or uses the 2nd best--- emacs...............
You can prove you're incorrect by entering
$ pico wrong
in a terminal and watching Slack launch the editor.
The person's nick itself indicates he's clueless, which would indicate he's
a *nix newbie - especially since he hasn't found a distro he likes, yet.
Vi/vim/elvis is about the most difficult editor for a newbie to learn, and
emacs isn't really much better. Pico and nano at least have command
instructions, as well as help, at the bottom of the page.
Who would think of :q! just to close a file?!?!?!?
Certainly not someone who'd never read the documentation.
