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´ve ordered the boxed set too, about 1 week ago. So far I´ve heard nothing of it, other than the standard email that my order has been confirmed. Should I get an email when they ship it?
I´m not in any hurry though since a. I´ve downloaded it already (and using it, works great!) anyway and b. bought it just to support the slackware project. Of course I´d still want to have the official boxed CD:s someday
Well, I think they are shipping them by mule now-a-days so you'll get yours sometime next year by the looks of your location.... Once the mule finally makes it to the east coast of the US, they put it in a plastic bag and strap it to the back of a Dolphin to get it over seas.....
From the Slackware Store:
Our subscribers are the first to receive each new release of Slackware
I just sent them an e-mail..... I was nice about it.. Who could be mean to Slackware?
Well, thats even better news!! I'm a subscriber as well and I'm from the mid-west technically. I'm closer to California than you are and I haven't got mine yet... Sigh..... I'll hold on a little longer...
I've been a subscriber since 9.0...still haven't gotten 10 in the mail yet, and no shipping confirmation from the slack store. I emailed them three days ago, but haven't gotten a response. Anyone else having the same problem??
Yep.. Same exact problem. EVERY single thing you just said applies to me as well... Still haven't gotten billed for the release, no e-mail confirmation, no slackware. They charged me for my subscription fee tho. It was 29.95 instead of 24.95 like it says on the slack site as well... Sent an email as well and no response yet..
I think lately he might be gaining in popularity quite a bit and he probably doesn't have the personel to handle it. Just a guess I suppose. I'm going to have to send another email and photo copy my visa bill to them or something. Who knows what in the hell is going on... I don't even need it now... Oh well...
I still haven´t gotten a shipping notice or anything either. Although my credit card has been charged of course To be honest I´m not even expecting to receive it this month... If I get it this summer I´m happy. Pat needs to hire more people

I never got an e-mail confirmation either. I was looking at my CC account online and noticed that I got charged. Later, I found Slack 10 in my mailbox. And it's still $24.95. The extra $5.00 is for shipping.
Well, I've only been billed once this year for 29.95 and that was months ago. I assume it was my subscription fee. How can they charge you an extra 5 bucks on a subscription fee when they don't send you anything? I don't care. He can have the 5 bones as long as he DOES hire more people...
