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.

Does anybody know when Slackware 8.1 (final) is going to be released? I love this distro and would really like it, having a 8.1 final as distro on my PC If it lasts too long i will have to install 8.1 rc2 it think.
Unless you get involved in the Slack development, your guess is as good as anyone elses really. This is the first time I've seen going through Changelogs that Patrick has even bothered to do Release candidates. He's started hacking through a lot of the confuration goop more than upgrading packages and there's quite a bit of bugfixing going on as well. Under-educated guess: Any day/week now. Really, not LONG.
