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.

The first time I tried to use the downloaded ISO image, I also had missing files. The image was to large for the CD and it ran out of space. I had to reauthor the image to reduce the size to fit on my CD's. For the bootable CD process please review the ISOLINUX directory for directions.
Yes, even I'm having lots of problems with slackware8.1 (downloaded). I installed the zipslack and later added other stuff. It seems that I can't even compile "hello, world" with success. It says crt1.o is missing. Also, many header files were missing after installation.
Heh, I started out with Zipslack. When I got to where I wanted to compile things, it seemed like there was _always_ one more package I needed to download. I finally got things pretty squared away--then 8.0 came out. All over again <g>. It was a little easier this time around, because I have access to DSL and a computer that's actually able to boot from CD-ROM, so I just grabbed the 8.1 ISO. Everything seems to be there.
