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.

Hi, I was just wondering... Do I need to do something special when installing Slackware (10.1) on a 64bit system? or would it just install like a native 32bit system?
Does this make any difference or not?

G'day there, I use slackware10 on my GA-K8VT890-9 VIA K8T890 chipset AMD64 3200 which is reasonably new and slack seems to run beuatifully on it , And I'm still a novice at linux , I could be wrong but I dont think its wise to mix 64bit software that is offered with using swaret though even though I was tempted to try . But I have tried lots of different distros and I find Slackware is definetly the best .AnyWay give it a go.
Slamd64 works pretty well. RC1 is a little rough, and I think Fred will get RC2 uploaded this weekend. There are a lot of improvements in RC2, or so I'm told. My laptop has an Athlon64 3000+ and running 64 bit applications it is more than twice as fast as my desktop with Slack10.1 and an AthlonXP 2000+.
I have definitely noticed a significant performance boost by running 64 bit applications on a 64 bit kernel.
