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.

Thanks. One more question, I downloaded the first two ISOs from BitTorrent. I notice that it also downloaded the md5 files (slackware-10.0-install-d1.iso.md5) and the .asc files (slackware-10.0-install-d1.iso.asc) for each ISO.
How do I use the .asc file? I know it has something to do with GPG and checking the authenticity of the md5 and ISO files against the file creator's private GPG key, or something like that. But what is the syntax to do that?
i was wondering about the install, since we have to option to select 2.4.26 or 2.6.7 and we can also select between gcc 3.3.4 or 3.4.0, should i choose the latest and greatest even though they are under "/testing"? also, if i do decide to go with those, i would i select those during the the install?
all you need is java installed, by the way the info on slackware says " with Linux 2.6.7 as an alternate choice in /testing" does this mean I can install that during installation instead of the default kernel?
