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.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone else noticed strange behavior from ntfs-3g since installing slackware64-current? I've never had issues with it before, and it very well could be my configuration of it, but every time I boot linux (and not even necessarily use my ntfs partition, just mounting it at boot does this) and then reboot into windows, windows insists on running chkdsk on it. my fstab for the drive is as follows:
Mmm, it happened to me years ago and after I solved mounting the partition by hand and umounting the partition by hand too... I don't know why this happens, maybe the mounting of this partition breaks some cluster or I don't know
Slackware 13.0 is released!
After one of the most intensive periods of development in Slackware's history, the long awaited stable release of Slackware 13.0 is ready. This release brings with it many major changes since Slackware 12.2, including a completely reworked collection of X packages (a configuration file for X is no longer needed in most cases), major upgrades to the desktop environments (KDE version 4.2.4 and Xfce version 4.6.1), a new .txz package format with much better compression, and other upgrades all around -- to the development system, network services, libraries, and major applications like Firefox and Thunderbird. We think you'll agree that this version of Slackware was worth the wait. Also, this is the first release of Slackware with native support for the 64-bit x86_64 architecture! Major kudos to Eric Hameleers for all of his work, especially on the 64-bit port.
