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.

Distribution: Slackware current(32) (started with 13.37(32))
Hi onebuck, I think the three dvds together, 32 and 64 install and source dvd
doens't fit in one double layer dvd, but 32install+source or 64+source will fit,
the final size is about 5,5GB.
Maybe this huge iso isn't available for the size of file, or maybe because
double layer dvd isn't reliable. I've heard a lot of people getting trouble
with backups in double layer dvd, but I never had such problem.
I'm from Brazil and have no credit card, so I'm figuring out how buy some
stuff at Slackware store. The End of World Mayan t-shirt is very cool
I agree but the capability to download the ISO image of choice is better than trying to include the ISO arch & source. Not everyone needs the source so PV has provided the means to get source(required to abide by the Gnu/Gpl). That way the trimming at this point to try an include everything within one ISO image makes growth doable. Not everyone will facilitate 2xDVD/Blueray. More than one way to skin a cat! Note to PETA members: 'No cats are harmed at this point in time.'
I have downloaded the tree and can get the source with no problem. I will either use the LAN or sneaker net whenever the source is needed. You might consider a USB Flash for the source since you can update over the net when ever necessary.
I've got a mirror of slackware-14.0 on my local machine. How do I create an install DVD so I can seed ? Thanks
Whilst you could create a DVD image from your local mirror you cannot use this to seed. It will not be byte for byte identical with the official iso. If you want to seed, download the official iso and then seed that.
