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.

Ok, I just finished installing slackware, and when I login as root I get the "root@darkstar" prompt. During installation I told it to use Fluxbox as my default because I only have 64 mb of ram. Well I need to know a command to input into root@darkstar or else I am stuck in the command prompt. I tried x, but it brought me to a grey screen with an X as the cursor. Please help I need to know what to type!!!
You're not from AAS, are you? Anyhow, I think a simple X will invoke the x server with no scripts. Useful for testing. However startx will invoke x server observing with the xinitrc script (in your homedir, should exist as .xinitrc). This file also specifies your window manager, so you should see fluxbox there.
That's all in the slackware book as gbonvehi says, but I reckoned I'd extract seeing as I saw the nick.
Tink, definitely, being stuck with the command line is quite a good place to be!
