Slackware 10 book


Anybody know where I can get the slackware 10 book in pdf format? I cannot seem to find it, only html on their website, nothing downloadable.
Thanks for any help in advance!

Not that i know of, but if you find one i'd like to know. I have a Slack 7 book, but Slack sticks to the fundamentals of linux and almost everything that's in that book relates to Slack 10.

I need the book for slack 10
Can I get link to get it from?

Actually speacking I have installed Zipslack 10 on my dos partition.
And have attempted to port it to real linux partition too. feel that I have a success in it.
But will be very very happy to confirm the correctness of what I have attempted. So need some detailed literature on it.(Not the one provided by slackware.com 1 page manual. that is not very clear to me)

Millions of thanks in advance to your replies to my query!
Long live Linux. (Rather Linux only can do good to mankind)
Rajesh.

I've got a huge old book dating from slack 3.1, but it's all still as relevant now as it ever was

I've got a copy of the *.pdf version, if you hit these servers hard, they may shut the link down.

I've edited the page, the *.tar.gz is ok, I just checked it. No one will be able to access it for around another hour or so, it's limited, but free.

good luck.

Dear Guru
Your efforts r really appreciated. But I downloaded the tar.gz file 3-4 times but it still says "Unexpected end of archieve"
so there seems to be still some error in the file.

I want it Please.
Thanks.

Please accept my apologies. When I tested the archive it was downloaded from a high speed connection. I've tried it from dial up and get the same error. I'll try to find another server, and simply upload the pdf file unzipped, and untarred.
