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.

Slackware rules! Just installed 14.1 after a brief and lamentable flirtation with other distros which will go unnamed to avoid flamewars. It was an exciting fling for little while, but luckily 14.1 came out in the nick of time after two weeks with more software crashes and installation hassles than I've ever seen running Slackware for the last 10 years (since 9.1!). The brand new Slackware has been solid for me so far! Thanks Pat and everyone else who has contributed!
I started with Slackware 13.37, then switched to 14.0... and now 14.1 is here, up and running, with on top my favorite pieces of software, picked from first-hand sources. Thank you guys for promoting user's freedom to the highest degree!
I'd like to help with the seeding (I have 'unlimited' up/down loading from midnight to 5AM my time), but I'd feel guilty not buying the DVD. Most times I can't afford the DVD anyway and I have to save up for a few months (disability check amounts suck!), but since (and including) 13.37 and 14.0 I've tried to patiently wait till I got the money and bought the DVD's and not done any downloading of the ISO's.
I use FrostWire as my torrent downloader. Is there a way I can 'seed' one of those links you have in your post without actually downloading the torrent?
