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.

Congratulations to the Slack Dev Team. This looks to be one of the most anticipated Slack releases in some time. My desktop is running Slack current so Slack 12 is already there. It's my Slack 11 servers that will keep me busy upgrading over the next couple weeks. I've got 2 SMP Slack VMWare hosts running 2.6 kernels and 3 Slack VMs running 2.4 kernels. Reinstalling VMWare and the change from Apache 1.3 to 2.2 has me sweating bullets.
Just pre-ordered slackware12 but would like to ask a question on which torrent client is best to use. I looked around and installed ctorrent which is downloading 12 now but some of the info I'm reading now makes me wonder. So, what's good with a lot of documentation for someone's first try at using bittorrent. ( I guess that should be my second try)
both those links only contain the md5 sums and the asc files (for GPG keys) neither of them contain any actual ISO's.
and the readme1st says "If you're reading this on ftp.slackware.com, you will find that the
ISO images are not here. This is because we simply don't have the
bandwidth at ftp.slackware.com to provide ISO images.
ISO downloads take a long time, and block people from retrieving
If you're looking to download the ISO, consider using BitTorrent.
If there are active torrents available, information may be found on
on http://slackware.com. BitTorrent is available as a package for
Slackware in the /extra directory.
Mirror sites may also have the ISO images up for FTP.
Use the .asc files here to verify your ISO images are authentic."
Did anyone remembered that Pat released an .iso version of rc2? Well, I just took a wild guess that a final version of Slackware 12.0 would also be there so I typed the link and BANG! It is there..
can we all just not use the torrents? This is what PV has requested. These don't look like mirrors to me.
I have my torrent going and will keep it up all day. I see only a couple peers though. When I get home I'll open my other two boxes too!
Please keep your finished torrent session running as long as possible! We need your help! BitTorrent depends on sharing bandwidth and does not work if there are no seeds (downloaders keeping their client open when download is complete).

--THANKS PATRICK FOR ALL THOSE YEARS OF KNOWLEDGE AND HAPPINES!!!--
Sorry for the late reply, just got back from vacation.
Thanks for the information, but just before I left, already installed SW12 via burning the ISO's on CD (on my old Slackbox, it lasted quite a while with this increadibly slow burner...).
Gonna tweak it for the next couple of days.
But it sure is something I wil look into with the next release.
And probably helpfull for others.
