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.

I have been using linux for about 3 months I think and so a veritable beginner. However, I am impatient to get Slackware installed as it seems from reading the threads that it is perhaps a good way to learn.
I have xp on primary master hd and Mepis on a primary slave hd utilising Grub. Would somebody be kind enough to advise whether I should install Lilo to the root partition and edit the Grub file accordingly or should I leave Lilo out altogether. I am just about familiar with Grub at a very basic level but clueless regarding Lilo. (I am planning to install Slack on the primary slave alongside Mepis).....Thanks !
I want to do much the same thing as quaylet. I am currently running a single 80 GB hd dual booting Suse and
XP. Grub is used as the bootloader.
An old posting on another forum also suggested adding Slackware to /boot/grub/menu.lst ,but I'm not sure
how to do this (newbie here).
My plan is this:
1) Partition some of the 38 GB of free disk on the current Suse share of hd (haven't decided on tool)
2) Reformat this space to something other than ReiserFS (expect install cd will handle this)
3) Install slackware from the iso's without bootloader
4) Add slackware to Grub
Don't see the flaw in this scheme which only makes me more sure there is one :-)
Any helpful suggestions or directions to a relevant tutorial much appreciated. I feel like jumping into the deep
end of the pool without my waterwings. Great fun !
