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.

To be useful, each mailing list should have a clear and distinct scope.
Besides the "official" (and very low traffic) ones there are several others in the Slackware galaxy : slackdocs, sbopkg,
slackbuilds.org come to mind. And we have other mailing lists for Slackware groups in different countries as well as derivatives, e.g. salix-main.
In addition we have several IRC channels.
So, what would be the scope of a new mailing list?
I tend to avoid mailing lists due to all the issues related to spam: either through the list itself, or due to address harvesting of the participants. I already get far more offers of Russian Brides and viagra than I can deal with.
I miss the old conferencing systems/BBSes and offline-readers that we had in the old days. Using a web forum in a browser, even a good one like LQ, just isn't as convenient.
