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.

Is there any way to have a redhat rpm work on slackware?
I'm trying to get tripwire to work on slackware.
The only option is an .rpm or source.
I haven't had any luck with either.
Is there a tripwire similar program out there for slackware?
Does slackware have a package manager that would accept and install correctly a red hat package?
You can install rpms on Slackware just as you would on any rpm based distro. Just do an rpm -Uvh. You might have to do a --nodeps to get it to install. However, that isn't a very wise option since pkgtool will never know about the rpm install and the rpm database will never know about an tgz packages. You have the potential to do a lot of screwey stuff to your system.
I agree with super that I'd install from source. What issues are you having with the source code?
