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.

Just upgraded to 12.2 as a fresh installation. I am very impressed.
One issue I have noted is that on starting firefox I get two firefox buttons appearing on the status bar and a bouncing firefox icon which persists for some seconds before disappearing along with the second firefox button.
This may be a firefox 3 rather than a slackware 12.2 issue.
I had thought that it might be an issue with my old .mozilla directory but I have tried deleting it and starting afresh and still get the problem.
No idea why, but I have noticed it takes several seconds longer for FF3 to start under KDE than it does under XFCE, for some reason. I'm sure FF2 wasn't as bad. This is under Slackware 12.1, by the way. Switching off startup notification does not help.

I've also got this issue with Fx on Slackware. Though I disable the launch feedback in kcontrol. I'm also curious on what causes it to do this. Also it loads quicker on XFCE, but I'm sure this is because of the gtk elements.
