My advice may sound basic, but I would say both books should be read.

It won't require too much additional effort because an intermediate user can skip the parts that he/she already knows or doesn't have interest in.

Both books would enhance your experience.

both as well, but in the order you listed. When I first started using Slackware I actually printed out the Slackbook (slackware essentials) and put it in a binder. This made it easy to refer to when I needed to be reminded of something.

I would also suggest you read the docs on the install cd such as CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT.


book, slackware
