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 for the links! I got it from SourceForge via proxy server.
I tried building it with Alien Bob's pidgin.SlackBuild, and that failed.
Then I tried with Pat's from Slack-12.1, and that failed.
I have a 3-day old RAID array on my workstation. This morning I built a new
kernel, and now neither it nor the default Slack-12.1 will boot. It has swap
as /dev/md0; /boot as /dev/md1; / as /dev/md2 - with is a LVM encrypted with LUKS.
Alien Bob has built and uploaded a Pidgin-2.4.3 package to his repository at Slackware.
It works fine ... my ICQ account is back online.
NB: His version is built without gnutls but instead getting the SSL support from Mozilla
NSS (provided by the Seamonkey package). So if you install this one, you will need to
have Seamonkey installed, also. It is included in Slackware-12.1.
