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.

Can somebody please tell me what I need to do to create a bootable slack-current iso in Windows (I know, but I have to work with it!). I know how to do this in Linux, but there doesn't seem to be any instructions as to how to do this in Windows. I have nero as my burner software.
There will be a help file in nero, i'm unsure what version you're running but to do this in nero is pretty straight forward, and you shouldn't need a boot diskette to finish this either.
At any rate, you might find it easier to simply create the bootdisk and rootdisk for installations of slackware.. one file is called color.gz = for the rootdsk, the other is prolly boot.i = for the bootdsk (though this largely depends on your system).
If you insist on creating a bootable cd though, the dirs are in the help files of nero, just do a search for bootable and it should point you in the right direction.
Are we positive that this works? I definitely remember trying to do such a thing before, but using a Mandrake boot disk image, and Nero complaining that it's an invalid boot image. Perhaps it was an older version of Nero...I tend not to use Windows crap these days
No it doesn't work. I tried it with Nero and the slack image and even though it created the CD, it wouldn't boot. I finally ended up copying everything to a CD-RW and bringing it home to use the ever faithful Linux to do the work. Thanks for all the advice.
