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.

been researching alot and i gave slackware 10 a try even managed to compile my own kernel and succesfully installed it! yeah!
eventually i ran into a whole bunch of problems with sound not playing, something about no libao driver during a mpg321 play and modprobe giving me something about wrong extentions.
there wasn't much info. on what to do after a migration to self compiled kernel 2.6.7
after much research i came to this
removepkg alsa stuff and compile alsa from scratch to get sound working
uninstall then reinstall module-init-tools to get modules working
my questions are
am i on the right path?
are there anything else that i need to do for this migration?
also i know that i needed to remove alsa since the one installed with slackware was compiled for that specific kernel (from what i read). DOes the same apply for module-init-tools? in other words do i have to uninstall modules-init-tools then reinstall it? or can i just modify some files for my compiled kernel?
does anyone know if there are other stuff installed on slackware 10 the must be uninstalled and then reinstall for this migration to a compiled kernel?
