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.

How the heck would I go about making a Slackware-Current bootable CD, I've found that LOTS of ways won't work...as in using Nero to burn with the bootable bare.i image because it wants the 5 root floppies. Next I took the 8.1 ISO and saved the boot info with WinISO and copied basically the same stuff to the cd fromt he current dirs I downloaded and I get Boot from CD : 1. FD 1.44MB System Type-(OF) and it won't go any further...I'mn out of ideas so if someone could shed a little light on this it would be greatly appreciated.
I don't have an ISO to burn, Slackware-current does NOT have an ISO...so I'm trying to make a bootable CD from that and I'm not sure what I need to use to make it bootable...like I said I tried the bare.i but it asks for the floppies.
Please note that there is a space and a period at the end. It is not a typo. The period indicates the current directory, and that should be /temp because of the first command above. The paths for the files IN the CD image are relative to the root of the CD, the current directory. The path for the output file is relative to your current directory unless stated other as in this case where is in the root.
Distribution: Slackware, (Non-Linux: Solaris 7,8,9; OSX; BeOS)
You are trying to make an iso of the directory you are trying to put
the iso in! That is bound to cause problems with recursion.
The above command from Excalibur will work if you have the space
on your root partition. . . The -o option is the one which tells mkisofs
what the output file is supposed to be. . .
