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 am using Firefox-4.0b9 from /testing. I never deleted the old profile from 3.6x days. I just noticed that the Slackware identifier icon is now just a generic Linux icon. I checked in about:config, and the general.useragent.extra.linux string is still set to Slackware Linux.
Is there something different to do for FF-4x? This isn't a real problem, just an annoying matter of pride.

Distribution: Slackware has beern Main OpSys for decades while testing others to keep up
Same here all around. no fix yet.... do like the beta tho except for search bar and status bar 0 search bar crashes sometimes and even with Status4Ever mouseover links still show in addy bar and are usually truncated, but pride is definitely an issue and I hope soon fixed
For some reason, the beta version from firefox doesn't support the icon thing,
even if it's set in about:config
I'm using 4.0b10pre, and have the same problem.
However when I use the latest version, not beta, it works.
identified Firefox with that useragent string. Last night, I was going nuts trying to find out where it is, and I still don't know where this string is in Firefox. On a Windows forum, somebody was having trouble with something I now have forgotten. Creating that new string was what was suggested. So I just modified it a bit to see what would happen. I knew I could always delete it from prefs.js if it didn't work. I got lucky!
