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.

indeed that is strange i have slack on 2 systems here, 1 a laptop, the other a p4 which i use as a server, neither are giving me issues, you prob did do this but i will ask anyway, did you check the iso's (dvd or cd's) before you burned them and are you using good quality dvds/cds and at what speed.
when i used to burn the cds i always used the lowest speed the cds were rated at (norm 4X or 8X - 4X one the master discs) - same for dvds, that way you get a good burn, if the cds you used were rated at top speed 48X or 52X and it did try to burn them at that speed that may have caused a bad burn, then again it could be something totaly different
i have that NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg1.run installed on my server but have not had any freezes, mind you the server isnt up all the time so that may be a reason why i havent had any freezes time will tell i suppose
that post seems to be dealing with earlier versions of both the kernel itself and the nvidia driver, although if you say you went back a version of the nvidia driver and all is ok, you should try and get all the info you can and issue a bug ticket on the nvidia site
